Okay guys, They have an adress and a name, they just need to get the paperwork back from RoadRunner(ISP) confirming this info. another peice of data they were able to find was the person who stloe it seems to be ocasionaly be going to janitorial supply websites, and looking for specific products, which are used in drugs. So if they also find proof of that more jail time for them

Well the laptop they stole was an older model Dell Latitude d600 celron M processor.

I have had a newer laptop for a while, its the one in my specs. The nice thing about the dell latitude was that it had a dedicated ati mobile graphics card.

Do you do much graphics heavy stuff, and whats the acer like?
i have an acer desktop computor at my house, its allright, but got clogged up pretty fast and didnt have much memory.
