iAgree.

I wonder how hard this stuff would be to crack, once you've pulled the drive from the laptop. At $90, why not just stuff a new drive in the thing and install a hot copy of the software? The disks are not the price issue.

So my neighbour had his laptop nicked (a MacBookPro). Much wailing and gnashing of teeth later, he gets a call from the local apple store.

Seems the fine member of society who bought it had ambled in to their store, told them he'd just bought it 2nd hand and could they please reinstall the OS to get rid of the previous owners junk.

The store checked the records, phoned the real owner and bingo, one happy story later.
