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:

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.

Very good idea.
