Ok, after my last snafu I have been authorized to post this computer update and I think this should be the end if it. After doing the math, it really makes more sense to buy an apple refurbished computer of the exact same make and model that was stolen. There was none available last night, but this morning there was so Megan bought it and it will ship in 3-5 days with 2 day shipping. This brings the total net losses from this entire ordeal down to just under $300 to replace the window, the computer, and the books.
Now can I say things are getting back to normal?
