The ImageWriter II in photo 10 is built like a battleship. That is why there is no sign of vandalism on it.

The notebooks in photo 3 appear to be iBooks, not MacBooks. They certainly appear thicker than an '06 MacBook and the hinge assembly is clearly that of iBooks.

Even though I'm a PC guy, it's just so sad seeing some of those abandoned Macs. Makes you wonder what were some of the last tasks those Mac's were performing back in their day before being just left as they were. The Mac's in the Niagra Falls Fire Station make me mad in the sense that perhaps the local municipality was holding them for some reason... What do they say, you can never have nice things without someone coming along to ruin it?

I know you're not supposed to take anything, but I wonder if that rule applies if you take some of those Mac's which can be a collectors item and perhaps get them to a computer museum to be cleaned up and displayed?

No human being would stack MacBooks like this.

When you see a mass of abandoned computers, like in the case of those iMacs & iBooks, it is often a school or government agency. Government agencies often don’t manage their computer inventory well, replacing machines, while failing to resell or recycle the old machines. http://lowendmac.com.../th07/0912.html

Yeah scoresone666 ................. a tru geek-head, afecctiando, etc. would & SHOULD be appalled at the sight of this photo-essay .... Regardless of their computer preference!

Just sickening & a waste of good reuseable/recyclible material!
