    Looking for broken macbook
    Hi,

    Apparently I'm not allowed to post in the buy/sell/trade section of this site. I am looking to buy a 4 years or newever macbook pro that is COMPLETELY BROKEN. I need it for a scene I am shooting for a film project where the protaganist is being chased for his labtop which he is holding in his arm. Understandably we dont want to be doing running/chase scenes with a real $1500 dollar macbook.

    My only stipulation is that the labtop should look presentable when closed. Thats it. Doesnt need to even turn on, figured someone here might have such a broken labtop theyd be willing to part with for some cash.

    Best,

    Charles

    Yes that is correct. Newly registered members need to establish themsleves before being able to post there.

    Don't forget to check eBay.

    Is it imperative to the films plot line that the protaganist is holding an Apple computer? Is the protaganist also running to a local Starbuck's to get his daily mocha frappachino (you know how Apple computer owners NEED to hang out at StarBuck's to show off their Apple gear)! lol

    Good luck with the computer search & film project!

    Yes - Try eBay. I bought a bunch of old Macbooks for training purposes that looked great on the outside but had various problems. The task my young student had was to attempt to construct at least one that worked. I bought I think it was 4 and he got two to work. But I payed less than $100 for all of them.

    Recommend using Onyx to clean your Mac.

    That worked out well. 2 working MacBooks for $100...plus a bunch of spare parts!
