Has your laptop or notebook computer been a target for thieves? My sister-in-law recently had her Powerbook G4 stolen right from her apartment. No forced entry, just a laptop gone forever (perhaps being pawned off on eBay). What can you do?
The first step is to report it to the police and for Pete’s sake you should have the serial number ready to give them. Without it, the Police have no way of tracking it. The second thing is to report the theft to your home owners or home renters insurance company. If you don’t have insurance, then you’re out of luck and will have to resort to other means of tracking where the laptop may have ended up. More.
