My laptop was stolen last week (I just received my new one not too long ago). I have the IP address of my stolen one...is there any way I can somehow trace it to where my old laptop is? Or do anything to get any information?

The ip is not like a VIN number, it's just an address. When it was at your home it used your address, wherever it is now it's using a new address.

If you have the serial number you could report it to the appropriate authorities but I highly doubt it will come up ever again.
