    I read this on rediit this morning. I can't blame her, she probably just assumed it was all old and useless and didn't bother to open it up. However, thankfully someone at the recycling place is an Apple guy (I'm guessing they've seen all sorts of computers come in, so you become aquainted with what models they are and if they are worth taking) and noticed the system. Also, kudos to them for trying to track down the woman to split the money.
