    Sorry to hear about this, for future use install this. Free for the basic membership. http://preyproject.com/

    Basically if it gets stolen, you get on a computer, log in and mark it as stolen. Then when it connects to the internet it will use the built in camera to take a picture, send its location from wifi and screenshot what they're doing.

    No, this is not advertisement, just advice xD

    Oh and did you have 10.7.2 installed and iCloud set up?

    If so you can use Find My iPhone feature in there to locate the computers, remote lock etc.

    I feel your pain buddy...
    I had my 17" macbook pro stolen about a month ago. Never got it back.
    Hope you're lucky to get it recovered though.

    Find my iPhone/Mac isn't the best as far as accuracy, but it will get you in the general vicinity.

    Undercover is another option for recovering stolen Macs, iPhones and iPads. It has some unique features.

    I've been using Undercover for around five years, since the company was founded by a young developer in Belgium. Great tech support is part of the package.

    I haven't really tried it out properly, but in the handful of places I've tried it in, it has been accurate down to a few meters' radius.

    Really sorry to hear that happened to you, I hope you get it back.

    Just a heads up for those concerned of this happening to them. See if you could endorse a laptop on your homeowners insurance. If you have a jewelry policy with your insurance company, see how you could add it to that.

    Good luck with yours, I really hope you are able to get it.
