Hi there. I'm from the UK, and own a late rev iBook G4 (1.33Ghz). And yes, it still has Applecare. Basically, one day I was using the machine as normal, and then I went to move the lid slightly, and heard what I would call a semi loud crack. I was scared... umm... 'poopless', but after checking the machine it seemed okay. The only difference was a slight loosening of the lid. Now, this is actually unrelated to the misaligned top casing, as I believe that has been like this for some time. Basically, when I close the lid, the screen is off from the bottom casing by about 2-3mm. I was thinking off selling this iBook soon, so decided that whilst I was happy to live with these problems, I wanted the iBook in tip-top shape for when I sold it. So I booked an appointment in with the Apple Store and told them the story above... "Sorry sir, the Applecare doesn't cover this, the hinges are pretty strong and you've have to have damaged them yourself for this to happen. It's going to cost you about £85 to repair." No I was tired at the time, and didn't put up much of a fight, and I kinda felt sorry for the guy who was serving me. I could kinda see that didn't 100% think that what he was doing was the right thing, but hey, it was company policy... Anyway, maybe I should have put up more of a fight. All I said to him calmly was "I understand that you have no way to prove that I am saying the truth, but I really was using it normally..." End result, nothing happened. What can I do now guys?
