Put it on Craigslist or eBay as "in need of repair." Someone will buy it for parts.3.33Ghz 21.5" iMac • 500GB HD • 8GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.3), 1.6Ghz MacBook Air • 3 iPods • iPhone • AppleCare

Currently Being ModeratedApr 20, 2010 5:01 AM (in response to Mac Medic (be@MacOSG.com))good idea...I guess my only concern is the info/files I have still on there. they are not accessible to a novice like myself, but perhaps to somebody who knows what they are doing? Or can fix it without losing the files? Anyway to ensure these can't be accessed before I sell it??iMac
How sensitive are the files on their? If the drive is hosed, they would have to do some work to get files off there, but it could possibly be done. You could go to iFixIt.com and follow a manual there to take the computer apart and pull the drive out first.3.33Ghz 21.5" iMac • 500GB HD • 8GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.3), 1.6Ghz MacBook Air • 3 iPods • iPhone • AppleCare
