Question Check this craziness out

I've got a good one for ya...

In the state of Maine...(yes this is a state not a providence of Canada.) the 7th and 8th graders were given Apple G4 iBooks in 2002. Now they're upgraded to a newer pc laptop next year, so every ibook in the entire STATE of maine is being sold for a sweet price. Yes they have been through the hands of retarded junior highers for 4 years now, but I'm willing to grab as many as possible and sell them to the public.

hahaha they sell in June when school is out in every single district. I'd have to buy up a few. I'm going down to NY next week though for some Yankees games, so I'll need to replenish my expense account I guess before June.

I've seen the XP thing done before too. It is real. It's just a matter of manipulating the install setup. No idea what specs...I'll ask my brother when he gets home.

EDIT: Some schools started selling them already! yikes! The MAIN kicker is that these were sold to the schools by the GOVT in a way. So the school can't MAKE money off of them. They have to sell em at the same INSANE price they got them for.

I don't know what I'd sell em for or how much I could commit to buying. I'd sell em for more than that though, depending on the condition.
