I'm about to take my Macbook Pro for traveling and I'm worried that
it might get stolen.

What service/website would you recommend to track stolen laptops?

edit: I found Adeona & Orbicule Undercover - is it ok to install both on the same laptop?

PC's aren't worth stealing, they just crash and burn. :P

May not offer as much as Undercover. But still worth a look in my opinion.

Here's the Wimp download link :

Wimp Download (http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/Wimp/4-194130-1.html)

But i don't seem to be receiving the emails. The developer took it off macupdate; maybe they're not running the service anymore.

Another vote for Undercover. I got the student edition which was (at the time!) ~$40. Hopefully I never have to use it!

Its a great program which will (as soon as the person logs onto the internet) email you pictures and video from the isight camera to your email so you can give the police his facial image etc... It also gives you an address of the person who stole the computer...
Search for it on Ebay... I paid 5 bucks for it on ebay.com.au

Good luck and have a fantastic time! :):):D:thumbup:;)

Lockdown will do the email photo feature as soon as the computer is disturbed and best of all it's free!! :)
