Used until late 2011
Mine finally died it's second death around 2012 or so. I would have put in a third logicboard, but at that point the entire case was disintegrating around the hinges (the hinges were the only sturdy thing about it).
Taking it apart the case came off in pieces - so I didn't really see a point. That and I transplanted the screen to my son's TiBook.
What happened with yours?
When I got it, it was beat to hell. The hinges were about gone and it was falling apart everywhere else. The backlight inverter died, so I just removed the screen and moved on. I got a 2011 MBP later and shelved it. I tried restarting it, but I plugged the fan connecter in there wrong, and *poof*, dead
My son's TiBook was $25 and came from an office liquidator. The hinges were broken which is why I transplanted the screen.
It's interesting because Apple relocated the magnet switch between Ti models so since the LCD is the first gen TiBook he can close the lid but the computer will still stay on. He has to sleep the Mac before he closes the lid.
It also has the old script "PowerBook G4" on it.
My son's TiBook as delivered and the last days of my old TiBook (the one with the binder clips).
The binder clips provided pressure on the logicboard at the right spots so it wouldn't freeze while operating.
