I have never used a laptop more broken than this


Broken hard drive, trackpad, keyboard (as of just this morning) and severely disintegrating casing. (You can't see it in the picture, but the plastic around the ports on the left side has chipped away, so that the cables connecting the usb keyboard and the firewire hard drive have to be taped in place in order to function.)

Time for a new machine, obviously, but part of me kind of wants to see how far this could be taken.

Might I suggest using quill and parchment for all future writing endeavors?

Just so long as you don't lose any of your work!

Do I see fake shackled hands just behind the laptop monitor?

Have you tried hitting it?

Ya know, spilling beer on my old G4 f'd up the trackpad pretty bad. Are you familiar with that scenario?

I have an old Mac SE/30 that I'd be willing to listen to offers on. It still works. As a bookend, at least. I have no idea if it still functions as a computer.

mac laptops are about as durable as lindsey lohan at a whiskey tasting.
