iBook G3 problems...
I have an iBook G3, (ya know, the white ones, not the clamshells), that I plan to sell on eBay. It has got some problems that I want to fix before listing:
VERY POOR battery life (15 minutes, it's dead)
Keys are missing
CD-DRIVE won't stay shut
Adaptor plug (the part that goes into the laptop) is broken, but it charges the battery... I think...
Worst part: When the display goes over a 90 degree angle with the laptop, it the backlight shuts off and I have to lay down to use the screen
Anyone know what to do with it? Should I spend more money on it trying to fix it up, give it away, or just, sad to say, recycle it?

Now for the OP i'd sell it for parts with that much going wrong with it. Look around at a parts iBook and go from there.
27" iMac, 3.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD, AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2GB; Quad G-Drive; 12" Wacom Cintiq

Yay... more keys fell off... I think I SHOULD sell it for parts, but the only good parts are the internal ones. It will be sad for me to let my 4 or 5 year old iBook go. But it's for a good cause, called the I-need-a-MacBookPro-or-iMac-fund. It'll help a little, but at least I'm getting there.
