    just wondering if anyone has a ibook or pb that they want to get rid of. my 1400 croaked and i really need a laptop for school. really anything with a usb port will be great. $350 max.

    i can sell you the broken ibook from my sig
  3. macrumors newbie

    whats broken on it? can it be fixed?
  4. macrumors 65816


    well i sold the battery and the mb needs help (new working on on ebay $10-$15 i really just dont need it sitting around my room
    lcd is good no dead pixels
  5. macrumors newbie

    which ibook is it?
  6. macrumors 65816


    it is the ibook 800
  7. macrumors newbie

    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
  8. macrumors 65816


    battery i sold for $30
    MB on ebay at most $20
    bubt it might be to much trouble for an older ibook

    lol! cant be as old as my 1400 was! i had that thing for years til the logic board burnt up. do you know any other places to get the mb from? i hate ebay

    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

    Doucy2: You've found working logicboards on eBay for $20??
  12. macrumors newbie

    how much do you want for it?
  13. macrumors 65816


    just what ive been told
    i never buy parts off there
    thats why i told him to get another one with just a broken lcd cause mine is perfect

    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.
