              Do I see a crowbar on the wall? I bet that’s Louis’ tool of choice for repairing Apple stores.

                      I think they get along great. A lot of people in the comments assuming they hate each other. Which is a stupid assumption. I think they're a cool team.

                            Oh! Louis! Apple? Wanting kit to last? Which is why they don't want you to open the sucker! ... Right?

                                I bought an older iMac 27" from a garage sale that wouldn't power on. It was kind of grimy and had stickers all over it. I think the owner was asking $100 and I offered him $20 or $30 and he said yes. I figured I'd take a chance at fixing it or just resell it online for much more as is. The owner said his daughter started using it after he upgraded to a newer iMac and she knocked it over a few times before it stopped working. He also said that his daughter was in to some really weird stuff so I should destroy the hard drive as soon as I take it apart, I said "Sure, you got it sir". As I drove home I was so excited to see what was on this hard drive. He didn't give me a power cable for it so I got one when I got home and plugged it in and it powered right up. The pictures and videos I found on that thing were almost enough to make me hang myself. There was a video of a chick eating chili out of a another woman's hoo-haa while she passed gas savagely. There were still images of someones insides while the camera was still inside of them. Have you ever seen what it's like when someone drops a large chocolate frosted strawberry cake with cool-whip off off a 3rd floor roof onto a mail box? Well I hadn't either, until I came across that set of pics of some ones face after some freaky shit occurred. No more iMacs or Apple products for me. I returned the iMac to the guy and said it works just fine, I said keep the money I gave you.

                                        This is a hilarious combination, Linus bounces around like an excited child at Christmas with a new computer and loves Apple. Louis is dry, gets excited over very little, oozes sarcasm, hates Apple and just looks puzzled why he's even there.

                                              that power supply unit is appaling. I haven't worked on an iMac for a while, but as far as I remember even the older models (2012-2014) had NO shields!! Apple truly doesn't deserve its success
