HELP HELP! BRAND NEW LENOVO THINKPAD X230 STOLEN FROM MY CAR! BLOCK OR TRACE?

Hi all,

 

well - title says it all really.

 

I bought a BRAND NEW lenovo thinkpad today from the shops. I left it in the car for a couple of hours (i went to some other shops).......when i got back to the car, it was broken into and the laptop was stolen.

 

Now, considering that the thinkpad wasnt EVER switched on or registered, could I still block it or trace it????

 

I read alot of stuff online about mac address, serial numbers, and Lojack.

 

Please someone help!! totally freakin out right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe there is no way to trace it. Perhaps, you can make a claim through your auto insurance. If you bought with a credit card, some card agreements offer insurance against this sort of thing.

I do not respond to requests for private, one-on-one help. Your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where they may help others as well.

If a response answers your question, please mark it as the accepted solution.

I am not an employee or agent of Lenovo.

That's a brutal thing to happen. I'm so sorry. It's been quite a while now, any happy ending?
