I'm in a dilemma here, though a tricky one 'cos I haven't a clue what to do! I currently have my trusted 17'' PB G4 1.65ghz and is approaching three years old. Three months ago, the superdrive packed up, meaning I need a whole new system. Today I've discovered my battery will only hold 45% charge, meaning I'm only getting just mere 2hrs with everything practically turned off and the screen brightness on its dimness. The PB could also do with a service and a diagnostic check - maybe with Leopard installed. This had me thinking, this is going to cost me over £350 inc VAT and labour ($600) to get the thing repaired and in good working order. Rather than pay for repair, I could use that money and buy a new decent macbook or MBP and sell the PB on for a cheap price. Or should I repair the PB and keep it for a couple more years? I'm just kinda worried that as the computer gets older, it might become more prone to picking up other problems - something like hardware failure. I'm not a heavy user, but do use it everyday. What do you reckon? Any advise?
