I have this iBook G3, which I love, but it has just been sitting around since the logic board failed years ago. I sent it to some guy someone here on MR referred me to, who soldered something for 75 bucks, and it worked for a few months, and died again.

Do you guys think I should...

Sell it for parts
Buy a new logic board ($250 or more)
Get it soldered again, or learn how to do it myself (improbable!)
Use it as a paperweight

Thanks for your input.

Well, I'm going to sell mine for parts if it ever quits working (500 Mhz).
