Well folks, my dad decided to enter the digital camera age, and so I traded my Kodak DX3500 2.1MP camera for his Rev.A tangerine iBook. Now, for the catch: - Some important keys don't work on the keyboard. - RAM is the base 32MB. - Hard drive has tons of bad blocks and catches often. - Both original and replacement batteries are completely dead. So, I did a little eBay diving and added 256MBs of RAM, replace the keyboard, and switch out the original 3GB hard drive for a 40GB 5400RPM. Now, I've replaced the RAM inside a Rev.A iMac before, and I thought /that/ was involved... no way. Has anyone seen the steps it takes to get to the original clamshell iBook's hard drive? (Link) Wish me luck! I'm excited to finally have an Apple laptop (albeit a fairly old-school one). I weighed the advantages of just buying a working clamshell off of eBay, but I definitely think I saved a few bucks by fixing it up myself, and the experience will be worth it too. Any other clamshellers out there who want to chime in, please do. Update: Well, as much fun as I had upgrading this iBook, I'm going to sell it now. See post below for more info.
