New ibook keyboard?

Hey whats up everyone. My ibook keyboard is beginning to get a lot of gunk under the keys, around the keys, ect. Ive tried cleaning it and i cant get down there to get it all out. Im just wondering, how much would a new ibook keyboard cost? I plan on keeping this little beauty for a while so im all for keeping it in nice condition. However, if the keyboard is to expensive, ill just ignore it. Thanks in advance for any advice..

on eBay, it looks like they're around $45 or so.

When I cleaned my iBook's keyboard, I pried up all the keys and compressed air and Qtipped away all the gunk.

edited to ask:
are G3 and G4 keyboards compatible? I have a feeling that they're not, but I'm just curious. If they are, I have one on the cheap for ya, CaptainCaveMann
