    I have a friend who purchased a stolen MacBook Air. It is iCloud locked the device is useless in my eyes but it did come with two chargers and a carrying case. (One original Apple and a second third party charger). He has offered to sell me the computer for $60. Since my used replacement charger from Best buy cost me around $80 or more I don't remember. I figure it's a good investment.. keep a charger sell the second for my money back..

    My question is what else can I do withe the computer.. use it for parts?.. Shoot it with my rifle.. pay the unlocking service.. I've done the right thing in the past, try and track down the original owner but it's always bites one in the ass.. I since down care for Mac or Apple anymore and have since switched to Chromebooks for all my computing.. I'd just hate to see it collect dust, in a closet.. any ideas would be appreciated..

    Suggest your friend Turn the stolen property into the police. It’s stolen and your friend is well aware of being in possession of it.

    Since you no longer use Macs, why do you want the charger?

    Most likely to resell it?

    If it's asking for the 4 digit pin, perform a pram reset. Just because there is an icloud lock does not automatically mean the laptop is stolen.

    Could have been lost airport luggage and then sold at auction.

    Read his post, he said he was going to "keep a charger sell the second for my money back". But really, it doesn't matter, I was just curious.
