Managed to pick myself up a free MacBook Air
Here it is
Awesome...although as you can see the condition leaves a lot to be desired. The screen would work perfectly if the data cable running to it wasn't severed.
The good news?...it still boots
Here I am installing Snow Leopard to it (via handy USB key with SL image on it)
And a shot of the case with all the non-essentials removed.
As you can imagine the unit is now fairly useless as a laptop. So, seeing as I didn't have to pay for this thing I'm going to convert it into a desktop computer...all I need is a case...
....hmmm...that white Apple keyboard seems to be pretty roomy inside...
stay tuned. :)
