    Specs:
    MacBook Pro Intel Core Duo, ProTools HD, Digi 192
    Laptop Locator App
    hey guys, just bought another mbp and I was wondering if anyone could suggest a free (or close to it) application that would track my computer in the even that it was stolen. Im a college student and I hear about stolen laptops everyday and it's starting to give me paranoia.
    Thanks,

    I'm not sure of anything for free.

    I use this, it's pretty good and I think there might be a student discount. Don't quote me on that though!

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    There is this:
    Adeona: A Free, Open Source System for Helping Track and Recover Lost and Stolen Laptops

    it is free.. but were I paranoid about my laptop walking, I'd pay for something that provided some insurance, which lojack does. Adonea, does not.. and would be VERY easy to bypass (then again lojack is on a mac because there is no BIOS tie in as far as I'm aware)
