    Is there really a difference? I was looking at both, and it seemed they both do the same thing. However, it looked like the cops were more involved with Lojack. What do you guys reccomend? Im thinking since they are both 39.00, I may get both :D. That way I can be double protected!

    just get iAlertU. It's an alarm that goes off when your MacBook is opened or moved and won't shut off until you type in a password.

    So couldn't someone just remove the battery to stop the noise?

    Yeah, but if someone's trying to jack a computer, and this alarm goes off, they're probably not gonna be calm enough to think of that, or to unlock the battery if it does. Hopefully. :D I just threw that out there because it's a free alternative.

    No problem. I mean, if you're getting Lojack or Undercover you'll probably be fine, but it's free and doesn't hurt.
