I'm using OS 10.6.8 and I have an iCloud account for syncing my calendar and Address Book with my iPhone. As far as I can tell, the "Find my Mac/iPhone" feature in iCloud does NOT work for computers using OS 10.6.8 since iCloud is NOT available in the System Preferences. If you know how to make it work, please share this info with us.

Thanks for this very helpful information. I will apply it on my own.

Umm, the only thing in this list to keep your Mac from getting stolen is physically locking it down. The title isn't really appropriate. Anyone can steal a Mac that has software enabled, wipe the hard drive and resell it. Take it with you or lock it down.

I totally agree with this comment. Having a tracking service does nothing to prevent someone from stealing a laptop.
