A MacBook Pro has arrived with my name on it. Excited, I clear off some desk space to get it set up. Carefully, I unwrap the box and ease the box open. Cautiously and with gentle movements do I withdraw the interior styrofoam casing from the cardboard box. And I flip that comparment open to reveal… A “some assembly required” MacBook Pro.
Oh, it’s all there. The outer case, the logic board, the LCD, the hard drive. Everything. Everything is just separated into individual anti-static bags. Atomized and each piece to its own. Rummaging through the box’s contents, I eventually find the assembly directions. And quickly discover that it’s a DIY “some assembly required” edition of the new portable.
And I apparently need to supply my own screws.
I tear through the house looking for the right screws. I disassemble eyeglasses and try those. Nothing works. And those evil bastards haven’t supplied any information on where to obtain those necessary fasteners.
