iBook Replacement Keyboard?

Hey!!

I have an iBook G3 (the original "dual-USB" from 2001 and I'm missing a few keys on the keyboard. I was just wondering if it would be at all possible for a iBook G4 replacement keyboard to work as a replacement keyboard without any problems.

Thanks!

I'd say, if they are the same size, and same shape, and look, yes. Otherwise, I say eBay or google for a replacement - should be like $10 + shipping.

Allright... I heard from one source that they use different "architectures" or something so they wouldn't be able to be used in in the G3... thanks for the advice, though!

The replacement keyboards are about $40 on Ebay.

Yes, I was looking before at them and they are quite expensive. I thought they would be more like 12.95+shipping or something, but I'm seeing $39.99.
