update: They were actually G3/300!

I was expecting it to be in a third world country, but no, these village idiots were local. I guess it just goes to show that common sense is uncommon. And that greedy people will trip over $20 to pick up 50 cents.

Why didn't they just give these machines to needy families? It's pretty sad, although it still seems hard to believe people would actually endager/wound others for a $50 obsolete notebook.

Maybe the county was just trying to lure in all the stupid people in so that they could drop the 1000 computers on top of them and rid us of their stupidity.

From CNN: "which retail for between $999 and $1,299"

I'm assuming that's when they were new, right?

you could hack the thing and make it run windows 3.1 or an older version of linux! but then the hd would be halfway filled up already...

I think the "i" alone is worth a lot more than $50 to some people. Smile

Jesse Sandler said he was one of the people pushing forward, using a folding chair he had brought with him to beat back people who tried to cut in front of him.

"I took my chair here and I threw it over my shoulder and I went, 'Bam,"' the 20-year-old said nonchalantly, his eyes glued to the screen of his new iBook, as he tapped away on the keyboard at a testing station.

"They were getting in front of me and I was there a lot earlier than them, so I thought that it was just," he said.

yes, that iBook for $50 is really worth hitting people with a chair ;o
