I have posted about 2 threads about my recent repair, and for all you who have not read them, I will post again and tell you what happened today. (I have a really crappy camera so it's hard to see the damage) On August 3rd I shipped my iBook G4 (1.42GHz 14") to Memphis, TN (2nd Repair) to get my mouse fixed because it stopped working. I got my iBook back on August 5th and noticed that the entire computer had black smugges and sticky stuff all over it as well as screen coming off and the USB/Firewire panel coming off. I called Apple and they said they would have it fixed as soon as possible, and they told me to send it back. On August 9th I got it back. This time it was worse. Nothing was fixed, but they decided to replace my entire system: ASSY BOTTOM CASE I/O Bezel Assy PCBA MLB 1.42GHZ, 512 SAM SUBASSY AP EXT/BT 11CHNL W PCBA MLB 1.42GHZ 512MB S Now when I read this it made be think: I checked everything and it had no problems. They told me my 3rd party Kingstom 1GB was the cause of this. Odd isn't it. Ontop of that, there were even worse black marks, the top of my computer was basically destroyed. I called AppleCare and talked to many people for about 2 hours before I talked to a fellow named Greg Calhoun. He said that they would replace it with a brand new MacBook free of charge. Now, this is great and I am very pleased, but he did not say what model they would replace it with. Does anybody know?? I spent over $1299 on this computer so I would expect something in the price range.
