putting a laptop in the passenger seat is like inviting the thief to come and smash the window mann! juz remember to alwayz put expensive items in the boot so that it is away from preying eyes!

You should always carry your notebook with you. I've been told that thieves carry detectors that can detect notebooks even if you place it in your boot. Sigh... Bad having to lose the machine but having the information inside stolen can be very disastrous. :(

As far as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as notebook detector. I was working in an IT company, where I personally noticed syndicate following those carrying notebooks to their car and follows them until they park. This is when they strike. I do notice someone follows me before and once I lost them on the road, imagine seeing their car around my office again later when I went back. They had been operating for years and the detector they had is their eyes. So, please make sure no one follows you when having a notebook in the car. Of course, the basic point here is still to carry the notebook around with you as the data inside is invaluable.

Please check this link before we discount the fact that there is no such thing as a laptop detector. It's always better to be safe than sorry. :)

FYI, there's no notebook detector... but THERE ARE Battery/Power source detector.
That's what the thief use to detect your laptop, which always came with a battery.
I have personally see it with my own eyes, it's a device DIY by one of my hardcore DIY fan. The size is no bigger than pack of ciggy, plus the coiled athenna thingy at top.
Just with a flick of the switch and it will detect any power source like battery, either by beeping, buzzing or flickering lights.

thieves use bluetooth cellphones to detect laptops with bluetooth capabilities!
even when the laptop is off,the fella can still detect...so make sure u off ur bluetooth if u wanna put ur laptop in boot!

For your information, not only notebook is their target! smart tag too. DO NOT leave you smart tag on the windscreen. Price to pay is more than the smart tag!

Yes....and I suspect switching off your laptop might not help as something must be powering the CMOS, which provides the date and time on your laptop.

OH tat one, i think they used that also to detect hamsap secret cctv installed in bedroom , toilet bowl , changing room etc etc..

ya ya..on the motherboard in PC got one 20cent size round flat battery to maintain cmos..i guess inside laptop also got...

i think if inside boot , maybe thief think twice before open , because car alarm will wee wee..but break window no wee wee..The victim's car second hand car so not installed the new vibration/touch sensor..so as long no open door or boot..alarm will silent..
