Thanks for an excellent answer! I'd forgotten that I would probably need to hack their router config to get remote SSH access to the Macbook. Legally I think it would be fine to reconfigure the Macbook with permission of the owner, but hacking a router would certainly be illegal (in the UK at least). If the police catch the thief, then they could end up seizing the router as part of their investigation...

FYI, she doesn't use the Mail program in OS X, just webmail. If it was me though, I'd prefer to change my mail password immediately to try to disable the thief accessing my mail...

Thanks! I should probably have said in the original question that I already did the WHOIS lookup and a tracert, but it doesn't give me a specific enough location. The tracert doesn't even get all the way to the target IP, presumably due to an ISP in the middle blocking the pings.

Not quite true: if the Mac was password protected then we would never have been able to get the IP address from Dropbox. So, this question does helpfully tell people to give the attacker a way to use the machine, and use a service like Dropbox to get the IP when it does come online!

Sadly she doesn't use iCloud or the .Mac service - I've updated the question with that info too now.
