    Awww -- that's sad :(

    How did you pay for it? Some premium charge cards have a 30 or 90 day purchase protection policy built in, that pays for loss or damage on stuff you have just bought. Check the details of your plan.

    PS: That's a good reason for using a charge card for all major purchases, too.

    That sucks.

    Dropped my Powerbook on the floor yesterday. Seems like it survived. Except that maybe the spacebar is acting a little funky, and my heart is still pumping somewhat uneaven.

    Heres the real story. He was outside on his balcony and wanted some soda so he put it on the railing. When he came back he tripped on the cord and it tumbled over.

    It was a bathroom accident wasn't it lilstewart? Go on you can tell us :). It's always so tempting to take it in there when you're going to be *ahem* occupied for a little bit. But then, when you're done, you really need two hands to finish up. Combined with a hard-tiled floor - disaster :(.

    I've been so close to being in your shoes on so many occasions......;)

    Dude, that f***ing SUCKS.

    Try to get your hands on a replacement screen on eBay. Then you could have 2 working ones. :D

    Ok, fine, i'll tell you (it's not like he reads these things...)
    So, i was talking to my step-mom and we started to argue, I'm NOT going into the argument, but she got really pissed off, (i pushed her to far) and without her thinking, she hit it like 5 times :eek: :eek: :( :mad:

    She was sooo sorry, and ordered one right after, I'm not as mad... We are going to fix the old iBook and get it working, and have my brother work for it :p -- I accidentley dropped his green iMac G3 333Mhz (screen broke :eek: ) so he doesn't have a computer --

    hehe..was going to post the same thing. Lots of Mac damage taking place over there.
    Maybe you should give the new iBook to your bro, and take the one with the replacement monitor for yourself.
