    All the feet on my Powerbook have fallen off except for the Bettery one because I just got a new batt.

    does anyone know how I get new ones??? I found a guide on Apples website about sticking them on.

    if I called apple, will they send me out a new set or will I have to send them back the computer?

    Yup, if you are near an Apple Store they will replace them for you. I had one fall off and just went in and told them what happened. They just went in back and gave me one. Simple!

    the only apple store that is available to me is the online one... do you think that they will send them out to me?


    YMMV... cool

    they might, its worth a try, they might charge you shipping, but they are generally rather nice about things like this.

    Good luck

    I called the Apple Education number, and they sent me new feet for my iBook free of charge (no shipping either) and I got them within 2 days.
