Lesson for the Day: Don’t buy a Powerbook in a Dark Alley

The saying “you pay for what you get” is true in many circumstances. Here is just one additional example to prove that point.

Let’s say you’re looking for a screaming deal on an Apple Powerbook. Apparently someone who (poor thing) must not have “all of the lights on upstairs” purchased, what they thought, was a brand new Powerbook. Turns out that not what they got. While the box was authentic, this person’s $200 simply got them a really poorly made fake laptop. Constructed of a gray garbage bag and cardboard, it was then spray-painted platinum silver and topped off with a hand-painted Apple logo.

You pay for what you get!
