    I bought my MacBook in November 2007 and last January it was stolen at school.

    I reported it to the police but had no results.
    Last week I found the site: http://www.mark-up.com/stolen/ and registered on it. A couple of days later I got an email that my MacBook is on eBay. Sure enough it was there.
    I contacted eBay and local police - now it's in a process of being returned to me.

    Being a student in these times, I'm more strapped for cash than ever (I had been using the schools computers for my assignments since the MacBook was stolen). Now I should have my laptop back in a few more days.

    Some technical specs for the MacBook:
    Intel 2Ghz duo 2Gb RAM
    13" screen, black

    Awesome! Always good to hear GOOD news.

    Bookmarked that site, taken a screenshot of my specs, and transferred to the mobile devices, to have the info if needed!

    Hopefully I will NEVER need this.
