Why a picture of a slightly beaten up old 2009 Core2Duo Macbook Pro?
I've mentioned in another thread that I like buying broken things to try fixing them.
This MBP came from ebay for the grand total of €23. Description - "Broken - does not work."
After a few hours of prodding and testing I come to the conclusion that the harddrive cable is borked. 2 weeks later a replacement cable arrives (cost €10) and fixes the problem!
An added bonus was that the original owner hadn't password protected the login and there was an old version of photoshop on there - CS5 I think. Newer than the version I had before anyway. (Yes, I deleted any personal information I found - there wasn't much).
It continually amazes me what people will throw away and why.
