dumb ass. First off its so wrong to steel one's computer or anything that someone else paid for,  second if your going to do it then do it right. Turn off the wi-fi and format that thing the minute you get it with out going into windows.

the only thing going for him is that that way he can try to weasel out of the id theft charge. but i'm sure the DA will try to find a way to stick it to him.
