i have a problem, which i am trying to see how wide spread it is. we purchased about 30 ibooks for where i work. about 1 year ago. then 2 weeks ago one went out. the screen had problems and the the computer would not respond. vewrtical stripes would apear in screen. then yesterday 2 more ibooks went out with similar problems. the screen would go nuts. and the computer would not respond. (even when starting up with seperate boot disk.) now today one more went out. i am thinking this is a common problem and would like to know if any one else has expirenced any thing similar. oh and all the i books were the 14in 700 mhz one. first generation 14inch.
