I've read a few blogs over the last year or so that describe some of the things Matt Cutts does on his laptop, having carefully positioned his computer so nobody else can see it while he works his magic. Apparently that laptop is a veritable tool chest of utilities to find out pretty much everything about everyone and his brother, along with a complete arsenal of weapons to nuke them from the SERPS at a single blow.
So, just supposing some enterprising - er, highly unethical - individual were to get hold of Matt's laptop and auction it off, how much would it bring on, say, Ebay?
Perhaps more interestingly, how much would it bring just with a simple note to Larry or Sergey? ;)
Honest, I'm not thinking of going into the "iron and steal" business, no matter how well it might pay! ;)

Matthew, you had your chance... at PubCon LOL!
Quote from Matt's blog:
Then I intended to work on my slides for the next day, but after dinner I realized that I left my backpack and laptop in the room where Google held its meet-and-greet event, and the convention center was completely locked up! The laptop was locked, so no one else could have used it, but it was still a huge bummer.

Not too much because most of the value is not on his laptop. He just logs into google and does most of it. The laptop with connection to Google would not do much. I'm sure if it disappeared he would have all his pw's changed before you could sell it.
