Watch a MacBook Air Get Blown Up by Firecracker

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 70 comments

Boom.

Going to a new computer from an old computer is a great experience. Everything is faster and just plain better. Of course, there's the issue with what to do with the old one. It can become a secondary machine, or you can sell it to let it serve someone else.

Or you can just blow it up with dynamite.

That's what these guys did after Apple announced the new MacBook Air.

Watch a MacBook Air Get Blown Up

Good times.

    Oh look, it's a dirty hipster with a Mac.

    "Hey Mom, when you send me the check so I can pay my rent money for my apartment in Williamsburg, can you also send me a check for a new Mac. Mine died today."

    What a bunch of idiots. The least they could've done is film it with a high speed camera.

    Seriously.

    Honestly, if these guys are filthy rich, I wouldn't care how they waste their money. Unfortunately, it's more likely these losers are unemployed and broke.

    A dozen Chinese workers died making that MacBook for nothing, just so these kids can blow it up with money they didn't sweat for because they felt it was funny...

    You can't be telling me that it's forbidden to have fun just because a dictator on another continent is cruel to his people?

    Hmm, maybe you could have put it to better use, such as maybe donate it to someone who can't afford a decent laptop. Maybe give it to a family member. What a waste, much like the skin of those two hipsters.

    It's not about the Chinese, it about a bunch of kids who don't even consider that things were made so cheap, so they could take it for granted, as they clearly didn't even appreciate the money spent to buy it in the first place.

    But even the Mac hipsters would have to admit the first gen Air was an absolute piece of garbage (minus the metal unibody).
