    My G5 iMac 1.8 is beginning to succumb to a failing logic board -- a not uncommon Rev. A problem. I'd like to keep this machine but fear that the cost of a new board will exceed it's replacement value. Any idea how much a new board runs? Thanks.

    It does exceed the replacement value. It was around $800.00 if I'm not mistaken. That's why we upgraded to the intel iMac in early Mach. Sorry!

    Yeah, figured as much. Guess I'm forced into buying a new toy!

    Look on ebay for a used logic board or parts computer.

    The site says you get 200 off if you send in your old one. Dunno if it has to be working, but it brings the price down
