    A few months back my MacBook Pro was stolen. What a horrible day that was. I'm about to buy a new Mac soon and would like to protect myself this time by installing some sort of software or chip in my computer so that if this does happen again, I can track the computer and then cut off the hands of the thieve that tries ;).

    Any information about this would be highly appreciated.

    iAlertU is an alarm system for your Apple MacBook that uses the built in motion detection to trigger the alarm and the iSight to capture the image of the thief. As of v0.60, it will also grab a screenshot so that you can see what the thief is up to.

    For ~$45 you can insure a $2000 macbook pro from theft and accidental damage for a year (see my thread here). Seems like a better deal to me than trying to recover it...unless you really have some data you need to get rid of.
