I have an iBook G3, (ya know, the white ones, not the clamshells), that I plan to sell on eBay. It has got some problems that I want to fix before listing:

VERY POOR battery life (15 minutes, it's dead)
Keys are missing
CD-DRIVE won't stay shut
Adaptor plug (the part that goes into the laptop) is broken, but it charges the battery... I think...
Worst part: When the display goes over a 90 degree angle with the laptop, it the backlight shuts off and I have to lay down to use the screen

Anyone know what to do with it? Should I spend more money on it trying to fix it up, give it away, or just, sad to say, recycle it?

It's junk. I have a perfectly fine G3 800 iBook and I'd have to pay someone to get it off my hands.

Well then pay the shipping and send it to me ;)
Now for the OP i'd sell it for parts with that much going wrong with it. Look around at a parts iBook and go from there.

Yay...:( more keys fell off... I think I SHOULD sell it for parts, but the only good parts are the internal ones. It will be sad for me to let my 4 or 5 year old iBook go. But it's for a good cause, called the I-need-a-MacBookPro-or-iMac-fund. It'll help a little, but at least I'm getting there.
