    On kijiji , there is a macbook.
    This macbook has an unknown administrator password.
    And no install disks :O
    Dun dun duhhhh.
    It's probably stolen , but I still want it.
    Is there a way to restore the thing without the disks ?

    Nice! I hope it has that software that takes your pic every 6 mins and sends info to the Apple Store letting them know the location of the stolen computer.

    All you need is a Mac OS X Install disc. Thats what the Restore discs essentially are.

    Is it even possible with the discs, with a password in place?

    Yes. The Password is only for the login screen from what I'm assuming. There was no firmware password locked on. You can even reset the password with the Mac OS X Install disc if you ever forget the password for your own Mac.
