Quickbitz – The value of a Macbook

I watched a video on You Tube recently showing a celebrity (some chap who calls himself Ice-T) taking a claw hammer to a Macbook and destroying it. Now I hate to criticize because after all it was his property to do with as he wished, but I can’t help thinking that rather than reduce it to a pile of mangled bits that will end up in a landfill, there was a better way for this to pan out.

From his comment at the start of the video it would appear that the display wasn’t showing an image. Suppose that rather than demolish the thing on video as a result, he donated the offending Macbook to be refurbished. Perhaps as a celebrity he could have signed it and the repaired item could have been auctioned with the proceeds going to charity.

Ho hum…
