Imagine becoming famous for pissing on US$36k worth of Apple laptops. That’s what’s happened for an 11-year-old student at Upper Allen Township Elementary in Pennsylvania.

The US boy’s actions cost the lives of 30 MacBooks, leaving some debate as to whether he managed to spray all of the computers so sufficiently that they stopped functioning or if Apple will have deemed the urine-soaked Macs’ a biohazard.

Cult of Mac suggests that the MacBooks are being written off because Apple refuses to service them now because it considers urine to be a biohazard.

Police charged the boy with institutional vandalism and criminal mischief and are turning him over to the local Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.



5 people were compelled to have their say. We encourage you to do the same..

    He probably just wet himself with excitement over Windows 8.

  2. Some Random Bloke says:

    Hmmm, make him clean them up.

    Maybe a reaction to a pushy salesman from overseas ;-)

    His punishment, to be court ordered to only use Windows products and cannot be within an exclusion area of 200 metres between him and an Apple product for the remainder of his natural life!
