So, I just got a new Mac yesterday and I was out.
Some robbers broke in my house and took the TV. 50" Panasonic Plasma.
But, they had no interest in the Mac.
Anyway, this happened a few hours ago, so in the meantime, I brought a new TV.

The insurance company didn't cover me for this

Wouldn't it have been cheaper to have gotten the Police to look into it and then buy a TV rather than possibly double up on them if the culprit is found.

Step 1: Post a topic with "mac" in the content field.

Step 2: Wait for children to come in and rage.

Robber 3: Yeah yeah it's a Mac. And I got a gold mine in my basement. Look, it's just a guy who modded his PC with Mac stuff so it's gonna be bait for robbers.

Robber 3: Look, he's trying to fool us. I know what's gonna happen. I've done that before. Me taking a Mac before then I found out it's just a PC inside a Mac shell. I was so gutted... Don't let it fool you.
Robber 1: But look at how the windows open and close.
Robber 3: You're getting fooled...let's just go!

I lol'd.

Bad news man, although I think the mac would have been better if it was stolen, because if it did get stolen, you would have time to think: "Do I REALLY want another mac?"

Give or take the fact that you like macs of course.

They could've at least taken it to sell it. But you're lucky that you didnt lose your mac, but unlucky that you lost your t.v.

Dammit people, this isn't a thread about Macs. Let the man buy what he wants.

OP: Sucks to have anything stolen, I hope you can find the people/person who stole it for great justice.

Probably left the Mac and such, because carrying a 50" TV out can be hard work. By the time they got it out, people could have noticed, or something.

But I'm sorry for your loss. Sucks you lost such a nice TV, but be glad you got to keep your comp. Hope you get it back.
