You can kind of chip your computer:

For a few dollars (okay, $5 for up to 3 devices). A bargain.

This seems ridiculous on the surface. Except that Apple serviced it AFTER it was reported stolen... I am willing to bet that this is where Apple Canada said "whoops, our bad, here's a new laptop". But in all honesty, really, if you go to any store to purchase any product, someone somewhere also wants this product, they sell it so more than one person must want it, is any store liable for any product that sells as far as it getting stolen??? That being said, MAC addresses are unique, always are. If it's a MBP then there are two unique MAC addresses, plus the serial number, and I have no idea about Bluetooth, but again I think they are also unique. The system ought to be trackable to some extent, no matter what. I would also like to think that there is a new policy in place as far as Geniuses are concerned as to checking the serial number before doing any work.
