    Haha,

    Mac Killer! Yeah!

    He actually had a black shirt on. Now all he needs is black gloves and a ski mask.
    I wonder if his headlights were off?

    That Mac sure put up a fight, though. It looked like he struggled to mangle it up.

    It's 5 years old, the screens messed up and it isn't gonna last much longer...

    I like Ice T though, he's funny in SVU.

    Wouldn't you love it if the video fault was covered under the extended NVIDIA warranty?

    Lol. Good video - atleast he wasn't computer illiterate and knew where the harddrive was and other else.

    Nice find!

    Oh - and it was a PowerBook G4 - it didn't have the NVIDIA 8600MGT (the one with the extended warranty).

    He lives a few miles down the road here in AZ if anyone's interested in checking up on his other machines :cool:

    What a doofus though. Even then, he could have recycled it to the Apple store for %10 of his next mac. Knowing he'd end up buying a decked out Mac pro to compensate for his retarded looking face and nameless other areas, that %10 could add up. :p

    AL90 :apple:

    I can't imagine him ever having to pay for his Mac's!

    I couldn't tell from the video, and I wasn't taking his 5 year estimation literally.

    PPC G4? Maybe he was also making a statement about Snow Leopard compatibility. :D

    I wish I had enough money to take a hammer to electronics that malfunction.
    That's gotta feel good.:D

    The sad part is that he really was trying to fix his Mac.

    I'm surprised he would even have a computer as old as that. It was kind of funny, especially the part where he was explaining the importance of the parts he was destroying.

    I wouldn't say he's computer literate. From the looks of it, he destroyed the optical drive instead of the hard drive. Someone could still steal his info. Hmmmm.... I wonder if he had any naughty pictures of CoCo on there....

    Maybe he's a bit of an environmentalist and he wants to dispose of it properly, or do these old batteries fit into new macpro laptops?

    It's his and he is free to do what he wants.

    Actually enjoyed watching him rip it apart.

    At the same time, there are folks that would love to have an old Mac such as this. Getting a new display would be an option. However, if the external connector (DVI) still works, then just connect a cheap external monitor and now you have a decent computer to do typical things like e-mail, surf the web, run Microsoft Office, etc.

    I'm almost certain it was a core duo 17" MBP that couldn't have been more than 3 1/2 years old.

    I don't find this video too fantastic. The narrator seems very ignorant, i.e. "Oh my God, that's beyond returnable! Look how wrecked this thing is, I'm scared" Uh, what? Ice T is wrecking a five year old computer and it seems a little immature.

    It was kind of entertaining to watch though, sort of.

    "Oh this right here is the important sh**. Oh yeah, without this this computer is f*****. Yupp needs this too"
