    The seller describes the lid as having rust...

    Um, yeah. Sure.

    what the heck happened to the case?
    I have never seen damage that bad outside of a fire.

    Looks like that MBP was used to mop up the spill in a Meth making operation.

    Would hate to find out what latent damage the fumes had inside, since at times the fumes can corrode the inside just as bad as the outside over time.

    Edit: would be great for a child who grew up in a meth house, would likely bring back the smells of home when it gets humid.

    Looks like a white sweater being washed in dirty water to me.
    Are we sure it is the case?
    I can't see any hint of a computer in that picture.

    It looks like they flattened a bowling ball and stuck in on the case. :eek:

    Dawg, you missed the Apple logo in the middle and the squareness of the object.

    I can make out the upside down apple now, but the rest is a dirty white sweater, I'm telling you

    What would anybody here be willing to pay for that?

    Honestly, I would buy it and just put some sort of cover over the lid and it would look surprisingly good and would be cheap as hell. But the problem is, who knows what else is wrong with the hideous thing.

    Like a tie-dyed MBP?

    Maybe you could take it and have it lasered like the other thread, or tell people you had it lasered and it went horribly wrong.

    And for just a bit more, I could probably find a refurb in perfect cosmetic condition. It's not like all of that software adds any value, because it's pretty obvious that it's all pirated.

    except it is defiled with windows.

    Though I can't imagine what it went through...

    haha. i couldn't recognize the picture in the beginning. I thought it was a desktop wallpaper or something. the only point of reference for what it is is a magsafe and the apple logo.

    to the poster: why don't you save the risk of potential internal damage and potential health risk and just buy yourself a refurb?
