ibook G4 power socket replacement?
My sister has an ibook G4 and both the power supply plug thing *and* the socket on the ibook are damaged. She can't charge it and now its battery is flat.
I guess its not too difficult to find a new charger (although I'd welcome suggestions for suppliers) but what about repairing/replacing the socket on the laptop?
Is it practical to do for a reasonable cost? Anywhere in the UK that'd be able to do it?

The part on the iBook is the DC-in board and is a relatively small piece. You can try googling it or looking on eBay.
It looks like this:

On top of that, the 12" model seems particular as to what serial range it's from "Please use our ID your Mac page to ensure this is the correct DC-in board for your computer. This DC-in board is only compatible with iBook G4 12" laptops that are model A1054 or A1133 (printed on the bottom of the laptop)."
