I put a new logic board, hard drive and ram in it, bought another dead ibook off of craigslist that had a known good display and good battery and installed those. only original item is the case and optical drive.

I really dont think i would do another one.... it took about 10 hours and a total pita, the ibooks are really not friendly to work on. however since Apple products rock it was worth it.

I've done the same on some later models, but mainly unibodies. The iBooks, whether G3 or G4, are not a dream to work on.
But if you have the time and the skills, it can be very rewarding - resurrecting broken computers and recycling them into active use has a special appeal.
