The following is the simple way to do it, although not as neat as having a built in unit.

There are numerous aftermarket attachments for you to choose from. Just 'Google' aftermarket fingerprint scanner.

Here is but one example. It is not meant as a recommendation for the particular product.

It attaches to the laptop via a USB cable and comes with its' own software.

I would rather have a built in solution as it looks more neatly and I don't want a protruding stick out of my laptop. Thanks though.
