a friend of mine at university bought a 14" iBook back in december, and a couple of days ago she was working on an essay, saved it, then the whole thing just died! it no longer boots up or gives any sign of life. she tried taking the battery out and sticking the power cable in, just about the only thing you really can do when a system just 'dies'. any ideas of what this could be? and another mate who got a 12" iBook back in october and his USB/FW ports just arnt working. kinda glad i bought a PB now... but seriously, anybody heard of these problems before?
