    Ok, I'm in a bit of an unusual situation and would like some advice...

    I have a 1Ghz iBook that I purchased in May 2004. About a year later it was dropped with the screen open and the LCD and hinge broke. Not covered under AppleCare I replaced the LCD and hinge myself. In December 2005 the logic board went. And it was definitely unfortunate timing as I had thesis deadlines in a few weeks and had all my work (at least the most recent editions) on my iBook. So I bought a mini, pulled the drive on the iBook, got my data and then put things back together. After finishing moving and gettled settled with a job, I decided to take of my iBook, and I realized I purchased it on a credit card that extends the warranty. The exact wording is that it extends the original manufacturer's warranty. So here's the question, if I send this off to Apple to try to get fixed on some insurance companies bill what are the chances Apple won't just say, sorry, this thing has been worked on and send it back?

    Thanks

    If the insurance company is paying for it then it would be considered a standard repair. Apple would bill the insurance for the repair just like they would for any other repair, except the insurance co. would be footing the bill instead of you. They only care if the computer has been opened if they are working on it under their warranty, in which case no one would be billed.
