You have hardware tracing (ie a GPS system built into the laptop).

How is software to know where it is; it is unable to just look out the
window. The best you could do with software is have it ping some website
that tracks it, so you could lookup that ping to its ISP and then ask them.

But its not that good an idea, go for hardware trackers.
