No longer working, no longer needed ... only one thing to do
BURN IT !!! (opens Flickr page)
You really do not think you could have got $100 or so for it on ebay for the parts?
I did but as a keen photographer the opportunity to photograph something 'different' is a greater reward
If you left the battery in that was suicidally dangerous
Also the LCD has mercury in it, you'll have a mercury vapour problem
And the logic board has bromides and probably PCBs in it, ditto
Setting fire to electronic equipment is a really really bad idea
Fully aware of the dangers (I work in electronics) battery was removed and the photographs were taken in a garage which has extraction.
So you just poisoned the atmosphere uneccessarily instead
You ENVIRONMENTALIST!!!11!11! You breed unecessary toxins.
OP: Looks cool Hope you got some nice shots out of it.
To everyone else: You lot are a pack of negative nancys.
I like it; a once in a blue moon photographing experience. Just consider it a prop, rather than a 'potential $100 sale.'
Forgive me if the EXIF data is on Flickr. I couldn't find a way to show it on the mobile version of the site. Care to share what camera and lens were used?
I fully agree that doing this is better than selling the parts. I would have done the same thing.
Do you have pictures of the LCD screen as it melts? What about the aftermath?
I had to give my 12" PB a hug after seeing that...it was so upset.

Haha no sorry.
Hey forget all the haters. Do you have any hi res copies to share?
Feel free to download from Flickr
perhaps you should follow you're own advice
Fantastic photos. I can see them being used in all kind of 'overheating Mac' stories
Oh and, ignore the haters; MacRumors is full of them nowadays.
I thought the pics were cool.
but it still made me a sad panda.
Good photograph Scott-UK. Thanks for sharing.
Scott-UK - my powerbook and I both cringed but great photos.
Fancy an 8 core Mac Pro?
my god there are some total sense of humour bypasses going on here sometimes.
OP's property. People waste money in lots of ways but I am sure you all dont go round shouting at people in the street for buying bottled water or whatever social injustice that goes on.
this is just someone having some fun.
Great pictures by the way, shame thread has been hijacked.
Dunno bout everybody else but last time a chucked an old PC, i took the HDD's out and took a screw driver and hammer to what was left to make sure no info could be gained from it.
Didnt end up with any nice pictures.
I'd buy your PB.
but still awesome photos
