One wrong move

This past weekend Steven and I bought a referbished Mac Mini to use as a media center (instead of a Apple TV). To help offset the cost we were going to fix the iBook hard drive that died a month back.

This sounded like a goodvidea to begin with, but after re-assembling the laptop and plugging it in, we fried the motherboard.

Well this is bad, but at least we can sell the parts off for people who undertake similiar home repairs.
