Cheap laptops provoke Mac mayhem (Article)

Richmond Times Dispatch reports: "Mayhem ruled at the Richmond Raceway Complex this morning. Henrico County sold 1,000 used laptop computers for $50 each on a first-come, first-served basis, and demand far exceeded supply. Thousands pushed through the raceway gates, a baby stroller was trampled, and many who managed to buy an Apple iBook had cut in line."

It is amazing what people will almost kill others over in order to acquire something. I can understand food riots, but these 4-year old Mac laptops for $50 isn't worth it. Read the story to get a better idea of what really happened. Check out this slideshow, and see chaos firsthand.
