    cool. wouldnt it be cheaper for me to just buy a working one. the battery and motherboard would be atleast a couple of hundred $'s right

    MB on ebay at most $20
    bubt it might be to much trouble for an older ibook

    bound to be some one on here
    what i would do is take mine and get another broken one (with just a bad lcd, and cosmetic flaws) and combine to two of them
    the other one you buy could be any where in the 500-900mhz range

    iBook motherboards ARE NOT $20. There's not a lot listed right now, but... here's an eBay search for ibook g3 mother board... $100 would be a steal, $250 wouldn't be too out there either.

    Sorry I don't have anything to sell the OP, just wanted to point this out.
