1. I signed an accountability form in 2012. The laptop was passed on to me (not using it everyday, it's for out-of-the-office business use).
2. It was stolen inside the office (estimated between 6am-7am). It was the third item/gadget lost in the office but was inside a locked room (somebody issued a statement that it was there) before it was stolen. The officer said the neglect was it was lent to another person (issued a statement that it was returned) and "was never confirmed returned physically nor inspected by you or any other personnel."
3. It was Php57,000 at the time of purchase. I searched for the same model being sold now and it costs about Php7,500 (in Aug. 2013) or so.
