  • - Hey guys, this is Austin.

  • I just spent a lot of money on tech from a pawn shop,

  • so we're talking MacBook, Xbox, Switch, PlayStation,

  • you name it, to find out should you buy your tech

  • at a pawn shop or not.

  • - [Ken] Who asked you this question?

  • - No one asked me this question,

  • but it needs to be answered regardless.

  • Okay, that's a lot.

  • So, we went maybe a little overboard, but you know.

  • So, the grand total

  • for everything we purchased here was $830.

  • Next, we have one of my favorite items,

  • which is a 2011 MacBook, I believe.

  • And we actually did a video on a MacBook

  • very similar to this recently,

  • and it's actually really straight forward

  • to upgrade one of these guys

  • to be a completely usable system today here in 2020.

  • So, first of all, I actually wanna take this apart

  • a little bit and make sure that it's in decent condition.

  • This is a very sturdy case, wow, okay.

  • What the fu, dude, come on, man?

  • I got this, I got this, there we go, okay.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Yeah, okay, that's not great.

  • Well, actually, you know what, no, no, no, this is fine.

  • It's a little bit scratched but it's mostly just dirty.

  • This is literally just wiping off with my finger.

  • The shift key actually has,

  • it looks like it's been melted or warped.

  • There's a little dent in it.

  • All right, what do we have here?

  • Oh, that looks very boring, okay.

  • That looks like a, what the, this is just dust, ugh!

  • - [Ken] Plaster. - Plaster, yeah.

  • Oh, look, there's also a little bit of stickiness over here.

  • I wonder if someone at some point

  • spilled a drink on their laptop.

  • Ah, man, I miss Magsafe,

  • just that satisfying metallic magnet, clonk.

  • So, it is the i7 model, so it actually is an upgrade.

  • So, that's like second gen Sandy Bridge,

  • four gigs of ram, HD 3000 graphics,

  • as well as we have the display.

  • We have that 250 gig hard drive showing up,

  • as well as we have the four gigs of ram.

  • - We got it.

  • - Yeah, see, 1080p video works no problem.

  • However, I think we may have paid slightly too much

  • for this guy.

  • So, it's only just a little bit less

  • than that 2012 MacBook that I bought,

  • and the main difference is that was just new enough

  • to be still supported under Mac OS, very easy to upgrade.

  • This guy is just one year behind,

  • which means that, well, we really can't do that much to it

  • as far as on the software side.

  • This one I'm gonna give like a eh,

  • it's about the right price,

  • but I feel like we could have got this on eBay

  • for pretty much the exact same amount.

  • Next up we have our $40 PlayStation One.

  • Now, what really drew us to this one

  • was pretty much entirely the condition.

  • Most of the time, you look at these things,

  • they start to yellow,

  • they start to get a little bit beat up,

  • but this is in pretty much perfect condition.

  • It also helps that I had to use one of these

  • for the build off, and maybe caused some problems with it.

  • So, regardless, I need another PlayStation.

  • So, let's toss a copy of Gran Turismo in

  • and see if this thing actually works.

  • I really hope it does.

  • (PlayStation boot chime)

  • Mmm.

  • Oh.

  • (PlayStation chime intensifies)

  • Wooh, oof, oof, it gives me chills, man.

  • (upbeat music)

  • I played so much Gran Turismo, not even funny.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Oh no, no!

  • No, no!

  • Get in there.

  • I'm not, no, no, you don't, no, you don't.

  • I am not losing this race.

  • I need fifth at least.

  • All right, I got him here.

  • They always go really wide here.

  • There we go, there we go, there we go,

  • there we go, there we go.

  • Cheating.

  • Yeah, come on, a little bit.

  • Yes, go, go, go!

  • How am I out dragging a Mustang?

  • Whatever, oh, I've got the Evo, too.

  • I got the Evo, I got the Evo, yes!

  • Yes, yes, look, Gran Turismo 2 is the game I grew up with.

  • Does it matter I didn't actually win?

  • That's totally fine.

  • All right, so, we'll continue with the video.

  • Let's take a look at the Switch next.

  • One thing I can really say about the exterior of the Switch,

  • it a little bit sort of beat up here.

  • You know you have that sweat on your hands

  • and it kind of eats through plastic sometimes?

  • It's a little bit smooth 'cause you can see

  • someone definitely kind of,

  • it's not beaten up or anything,

  • but it's a little bit sort of weathered.

  • If I only had enough charge to actually turn on.

  • We'll be right back. (clock ticking)

  • So, while we wait for the Switch to charge,

  • let's take a look at our 29.95 Apple TV.

  • A lot of people are selling it for between 30 and $40.

  • So, this is actually a perfectly reasonable price.

  • That actually looks pretty, oh, hey, look at that.

  • And it works, let's get this on, oh.

  • - [Man] Anyways, there's a lot

  • of special spiritual connections

  • between the Dreamcast and the original Xbox.

  • I feel like a lot of the folks

  • at Sega to bring

  • on that content also to Xbox,

  • and we were learning a lot from them.

  • - How very strange, very strange.

  • - [Ken] Oh, no, no, no, it's not strange.

  • Did it just attach to the AirPlay?

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Oh, what, Ken?

  • Ken, I've forgotten that was a thing!

  • This is the same remote they use on the Apple TV

  • that works on the MacBook, dude!

  • I'm curious, so we have a lot of apps

  • such as Prime Video and Netflix,

  • and oh, actually, YouTube.

  • - iPad is better than a console at gaming.

  • - No problem, okay, 30 bucks, I'm gonna give that a thumbs up.

  • (upbeat music)

  • It works.

  • Now, let's take a look at our Switch,

  • which seems to be charged up enough.

  • Okay, well, this is also logged into someone's account.

  • What is this, Jaden?

  • Oh, no, sorry Jaden.

  • Okay, it's a little sticky, but you know what?

  • That's not the worst thing I've ever tried.

  • Yeah, no, this is fine.

  • I think, realistically,

  • you could probably clean that out a little bit

  • and it would be just fine.

  • Clearly, it's not even like the Joycon drift.

  • It's just literally like someone

  • got this thing dirty at one point,

  • didn't really clean it out.

  • So, for context, if I wanted to buy a full Switch setup

  • with a working Joycon as well as a dock,

  • it would cost about $250.

  • Now, if I wanna just get the dock by itself,

  • we're looking at about $35.

  • Now, you can get third party docks for cheaper,

  • but even with that dock,

  • we're looking at, what, just a little bit over $200

  • for a fully working Switch and a dock.

  • And, realistically, if you don't wanna use this

  • as a docked console,

  • if you just wanna use it as a Switch Lite,

  • you're getting something which is actually cheaper

  • and has more capability.

  • It's a little bit of a gamble.

  • The stick is a little bit on the sticky side,

  • but I actually think this is the best deal we've gotten.

  • That's actually pretty solid.

  • So, next, let's take a look at the Xbox One.

  • Now, at $100, I'm pretty confident
