    Wow, that's the first story I ever submitted to MacBytes and it got posted :).

    Also iFixit also buys used laptops, they gave me $600 for an old iBook G3 I had ;).

    Makes perfect sense since they've expanded to iBooks and Mac Mini's now. Now they're free to expand to the whole line of Apple computers.

    How about a PowerFixit for the super-serious? Or would that be Fixit Pro?

    Meh, I'm surprised they lasted this long as PBFixit, they've had the iBook and mini guides for quite a while. They're an awesome resource. :)

    I sold my iBook to them, they were great but never bought any parts from them, but I might buy a HD upgrade for my TiBook so hopefully they'll be as good to deal with as they were when I sold them something.

    I bought 2 spudgers from them, very handy when working on iBooks and PB's and (Macbooks) and iPods.

    Oh yeah, and craptels too :(

    I hope they pry open a nice shiny new Macbook Pro soon. :D
