    hi Folks,

    need to buy a small part for my G4 Powerbook. Have checked out a few suppliers; these ones seem to have BAD reviews: WELOVEMACS, IFIXIT, DV WAREHOUSE ... the following had GOOD reviews: MACPARTSONLINE.COM, PBPARTS.COM, TEXASMACREPAIR.COM ....

    can anyone with experience comment on which I should trust?

    thx

    :cool:

    eBay and macsales.com (Other World Computing) are good.

    Most of the time I get my parts from OWC and ebay as well.

    UsedMac.com is a good site. I've bought a logic board from them and a sound ribbon cable. They are pretty cheap and the parts are good.

    With PowerPC Macs the best thing to do for part needs is buy a spare machine. New single parts for these machines are almost non-existent now.

    Since all PowerPC systems can be had quite cheap these days it's very practical to buy a spare of whatever Mac you have at least if you want to be on that Mac for any length of time. That way you have a spare for every single part.
