Refurbished Apple laptop overflowing with porn

This is a little disconcerting. Now, I’m all for buying refurbished products, because they’re supposed to go through the stringent “let’s fix it up” process at the original manufacturer, whipping out the other end “just as new” but for a substantially lower price. Apparently, some guy in charge of “refreshing” Apple laptops didn’t do a particularly thorough job, because the refurbished Macbook got sent to an 11-year-old girl “filled with porn”.

A London consumer went out to buy a MacBook for his 11-year-old daughter, opting to take the refurbished route at his local Apple store. Upon booting it up for the first time, he found that the desktop “was full of pornographic JPGs.”

The account given in the Read link below is second-hand, but the IM conversation describes how the upset buyer has filed a complaint “with the OfCom ombudsman.” Involving the government, but with no proof (he’s already reformatted the computer). Hmmph.
