    here is my new setup :)

    Surprisingly the inside is not that bad. there is some minor burning, but it seems like it should work. i put my hard drive in an external enclosure to try on my new mbp, but the drive was seized. sometime i might put a cheap drive in there, plug in my external monitor, & see what happens.

    That's sad. I hope you didn't lose any data. How did it burn?

    Edit: Just saw the photos. Ouch, I hope no one got hurt.

    Ford?
    There was a recall for that. I'm pretty sure it was Ford.

    Sorry man. :( Too bad your friend didn't get the recall repair done. I guess you both got new stuff out of the deal though ;) Planned upgrades by fire, maybe? :D

    Here. Not sure if you're joking or not (since you're new) but you way as well have the information; it can't hurt you anyway.
