Thinking about buying a Mac, but one question remains, is there any that have built in GPS? My old laptop had a GPS PC card, but Mr.Thief oh so cleverly pulled that out. >.< So, I want a macbook that has a built-in GPS unit. Any info on whether or not one exists would be great. Also, if there is any other way of finding a stolen macbook would be greatly appreciated, just incase I lose another.

Oh, and price is not a problem either,

MacBooks do not come with GPS built in. You could try something like the Garmin Mobile PC, but it is not Mac compatible. However it would work with Boot Camp or Parallels.

There is no Apple computer with GPS built in.

If your looking for theft security and recovery then check out LoJack for Laptops.

Thanks for both of your replies. I looked into both, and both seem like good options, let's just hope it doesnt come down to me having to need to search for it with GPS. Thanks

You should try Adeona. It is a freeware program that will run in the background on your computer. When you go to the website and report your laptop stolen, the next time your mac is connected to the internet, it will take down the IP address, take a photo using iSight, and give you all the data the police need to get your mac back. Here is the link.
