    This site below is Canadian, so I'm not sure, if some of the things that they saying will stand the same in the United States. Someone said report it stolen and give serial number to the police to put in the database of stolen property, so if it is pawned, your mac can be tracked. And another thing is to get your insurance to cover your loss.

    Can anyone tell us, if reporting the serial number will help George Ochoa?

    You might be out of luck to take it into your own hands. I'm not sure, if there is any other way to recover your iBook. Be sure to change all your passwords online, you don't want to be a victim of identity theft.

    Well thanks for the article. I just changed the passwords. I read the articles and there is no way to track an iBOOK down after a system clean up with the recovery disks. And this is because it will erase any tracking program that is in there, not that I had one but it wouldnt have worked any way. Well im going to report it to the police and give them the serial number, maybe they might find it in a pawn shop or something.

    Hopefully, a person that needed quick cash, stole it and is looking for a pawn shop, unfortunately.

    Look on eBay and sort the search by those nearest you. You might find it there.

    Bit difficult if you need to use a laptop for school/work/university...

    Argh...stupid 'Edit' facility not working....

    I really hope your iBook turns up too. If you don't mind me asking, was he or she aware you had an iBook and went for that specifically? I'm just curious because I may be thinking twice about whether I should be taking out my iBook in public places now...
