Hi deb, I posted a very similar question a few months ago. As yet we haven't found a solution to this. It seems the metal doesn't like the rfid tag. Karen. Royal holloway university.

We offer a laptop loans service and would like to ensure that the laptops remain within the library. The RFID tags we use for security don't work due to the metal in the laptop. Does anyone know of a way to stop laptops or netbooks working outside of a particular area? Or does anyone use a particular make of laptop that works with RFID tags?
Many thanks for any advice and apologies for cross posting.
