    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knows of reportable insurance company for our MPS’s in the UK. As I don’t think that i’m covered outside of the house if my shiny new box gets stolen.

    I use state farm, your best bet would be to call your insurance agent and get a quote.

    I insured mine with CompuCover for £123 for one year. Most of the cheap insurance websites I found wouldn't insure the full value of my MBP.

    I'm insured with Hiscox. They do a home insurance policy which also covers business equipment away from home for small business owners. Won't be of any use to you of course unless you own a small business and the laptop is a business expense.

    For an individual the best option is to get all-risks cover added to your home insurance policy. Shouldn't be too expensive.

    Cheers,

    My contents insurance (Endsleigh) includes items lost/stolen outside my home up to £1500 which covers my MacBook. I would pay extra if I had a more expensive laptop. And accidental damage is also extra.

    Yep. Normally for anything worth over £1500 you would need to pay extra for all risks. Seems to me that limit hasn't changed for a long time! It's not difficult to spec up a >£1500 MBP!

    Cheers,
