Facebook has been out of that building for awhile. It doesn't appear that they need those laptops. Maybe they should clean things out and donate what they are not using in their new space.

Crime in Palo Alto is out of control now. But why does Facebook still use that space as they've already moved to Menlo Park?

@danielle, my guess is that Facebook signed a lease there which has not yet run out.
