    Some guy is selling a 500mhz G3 ibook for 200, the only problem is it has a broken screen. How much would it cost to replace, and is this a good price?

    Thanks.

    $200 for a 500MHz G3 iBook with a BUSTED screen.... no way! I wouldn't buy it.

    This guy needs to get real. That's way too much for a six year old laptop with a broken screen.

    You could probably find a replacement screen on ebay for less than $100, but you would have to replace it yourself of course. Getting it professionally repaired would likely be prohibitively expensive.

    I bet that you could find a G4 ibook for $300. I wouldn't buy that, especially with the risk of breaking something when fixing the screen. I think that you can do much better with your money! good luck
