    Ok, I am selling a couple of parts off this MacBook in the marketplace, but everyone wants to know what happened.

    This past Saturday, my contact at CompUSA called me and told me they got three MacBook Pro's in. So, I jumped in my new company car, and headed to Baton Rouge.

    When I got there they had sold one already, so I picked up the other two. One for a customer, and one for my partner. I have a mini at home, so I did not need a Mac, but he has never used one, so his first mac is a beautiful MacBook Pro.

    Well, yesterday, he texted me and asked me to get another MacBook Pro. So, I called all over the SouthEast to find one, and nobody had one, so I ordered one through CompUSA to have it delieved the next day. Well, about 10 minutes later, my contact called me back from CompUSA and told me that they got six in. So, I head to Baton Rouge again.

    Well, I get there and he calls me and tells me to get two. And to mark them up on the invoice 100%. That is crazy. I ask him who it is for, and he won't tell me. SO I get two, and then come home. He comes over and walks in with his MacBook Pro in the box.

    So I ask him what is wrong with it, and he tells me to open it. I nearly died. He got into an arguement with his wife, and she took it upon herself to take some sort of blunt object and beat the MacBook Pro.

    She destroyed the keyboard, the battery, the LCD, the trackpad, and the Logic Board.

    After doing so, she walked into the room he was in and told him to enjoy his new laptop.

    Pictures will follow.

    OUCH!!! That is harsh. No insurance would cover that either so that's a good $2000 down the drain. Ouch.

    Wow...poor guy. He shouldn't stay in a home environment with someone who has those kinds of anger management and physical violence issues. :( She could hurt *him* next time.
