Apple does not keep track of stolen Apple products.

Decode Mac Serial Number, I don't believe this will tell you if it has been stolen. Apple does not maintain a list of stolen products. You can call your local police to determine if the item is on the national hot list.

***** to have to call the police whenever I'm buying computers or latops.

Well, would't the latop have support even if it was stolen because someone had to really had bought the laptop at some point. and that buyer and owner probably got insurance and so forth.

Checking the registration in the Apple database won't do you much good, because anyone who knows the serial number can register it under his own Apple ID. There is no way you can be sure that a used computer, or anything else used for that matter, isn't stolen. If you're thinking that Apple maintains a list of stolen products, it doesn't. The only exception would be a product stolen directly from Apple, for example by burglary of an Apple Store. That's a drop in the bucket of all computer thefts.

Since Apple doesn't check S/N's, is there a stolen Apple product database checker that anyone would recommend?
