G4 died? How old is that? I'm assuming you got the extended service contract. :)

lol unfortunatly no. I had it repaired for the same problem like six months ago from apple and paid $300. I was going to buy a new computer anyway, but i guess ill have to make use of my family's virused up PC.

Rule 1:

ALWAYS get Applecare. Always.

According to BsearsSF on the Apple Discussion forums...

Look in the paperwork that they gave you when you got your ibook back. When I paid the flat fee, Apple guaranteed it for 90 days, and usually they can fudge that a bit. My MLB failed for the 2nd time after a little less than 4 months, and they took it back and fixed it for free.

If all else fails seriously throw a fit. They have precedent of taking in repeat repairs and they should take yours back if you talk to the right people.
