this could be fun.
i take good care of my macs all of them including the mac my dad had in 1985 are still running!!!
it would just be interesting to see some nasty Macs.
what on earth happened to that thing?
I once pile drived a G3 Green iMac from the top of a pickup. Than took a baseball bat to it with my friends
Those gasses make you woozy....
The thing was broken, believe me it was trash before we got ahold of it.
i think it went to a 5th grader...
Ding! My 17" Powerbook... which I'm currently trying to sell!
From the infamous Macintrash thread found in Wasteland:
Very interesting pictures, thanks for posting.
I also take good care of my Mac's. They only have the imperfections of production and slight wear and tear.
Everything from my 512k to my G5 are in great condition.
I wouldn't ever think of doing harm to them.. I am such a sappy person
Although I don't have any trashed mac's around I really should take a pic of the computer graveyard me and my roomie have started. We both seem to have an affinity for picking up garbage computers/monitors/cases etc in hopes of getting a cheap PC going. We had 2 pentium II's running for a while but they both kinda bit the dust. So I've got about 2-3 open cases and variose IDE cables and drives sitting around me.
not mine, dont know how it happend, just don't want it to happen to me *knock on wood*
I'll post a picture of my decapitated, functional PowerBook when my digital camera gets back from Las Vegas. It stowed away with my grandmother.
Some of us like to take care of our belongings.
homerjward nice avatar.
Funny...that's what we call our school
I dropped my 12" Powerbook, which fell four feet and landed square on its corner. All it did was press in the corner of the case and buckle two small places in the bottom shell. All of the hardware survived, passed all the hardware tests, and functioned perfectly.
I've heard similar stories, as well as one lady baking her Powerbook in the oven and one guy running over his with a Toyota SUV. They all survived.
A friend of mine dropped his iBook similar to the situation where I dropped my Powerbook, but his outcome was a bit different -- the plastic on the corner shattered.
That's not to say that the PB is stronger than the iB -- just that your mileage may vary. The real idea is to keep stuff like laptops as far away from the edge of your desk as possible.
This thread makes me sad
I have had one of my Macs tragically perish: My PB 140 was hit by a damn leaking radiator heater: nothing was hit, and I mean nothing, but the PB: everything was as dry as Texas.
I still have it...
This post couldn't have come at a better time for me. I just dropped my 15" PowerBook last week and it did rather a lot of damage:
· Buckled/dented lower-left chassis corner
· Buckled and cracked plastic ring on palm rest
· Buckled palm rest on front-left corner
· Dent above PCMCIA slot
· Buckled/skewed and dented screen hinge (causes screen to close at an angle)
· Buckled screen surround
· Dent in battery
· Broken catch prevents screen from latching with main unit
· Dark areas on screen which were not apparent previously
When it gets back from the insurers I'll post photos that I took on my mobile phone, but didn't have time to transfer over bluetooth before sending it away.
It's rather upsetting seeing your beloved computer all smashed up!
Haha that reminds me of the whole printer scene in Office Space.
I actually know where that came from, DriveSavers uses the image as an advertisement for computers that they have pulled data from. The image u posted is of a powerbook that was run over by a bus at a MacWorld Expo long ago.
More Victims: Guess what happened to them!
iMacs on fire?
PB in the Amazon?
heh- I need to dig out the pictures of my iBook that got run over(i am typing this on it right now...)
I don't have any damaged Macs, but I liked this thread so much that i thought I would bump it to the top.
my cube was in a zillion pieces then i put it back together
maby that why it doesnt work
i also had a ti book and a 800mhz g3 ibook the we both completly taken apart
Kills me everytime I look at it. Dropped my cell phone onto it from about 10-12 inches.
