Dont know how hard this would be to install but I hate to see my ibook die and I also hate to put more than $200 into a used machine.

stop right there, head over to ifixit.com (http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Mac/iBook-G4-14-Inch/84) and read your way through the repair/replace guide. if you don't faint from fright, and don't mind the 3 page screw guide :eek: then continue to look. not impossible, but not a beginner repair by any stretch. just sayin', look before leaping and spending more money on an already dead laptop.
we would also need to know the specs on your dead ibook to find you a replacement, as very few models can use a different board than the original. can't stuff a 1.33 into you 800 and so on. best of luck either way.

Yeah you are probably right, I put in my hd but this does look extremely hard.
