So last week I started to get scrambled video on my iBook G3 (2002 vintage) running 10.2.8. I got it to start up correctly before freezing twice in the last week, but it appears to have given up completely today. I'm not as concerned about this as I would have been a few years ago, since I have a lot of experience with similar problems. Apple replaced the logic board under AppleCare in 2003 and again in 2004, and this is part of the series of iBooks that Apple was fixing for free for a while as part of a class-action settlement. Apple doesn't appear to be doing that anymore (that's fine, the computer is Old with a capital O and it's not feasible to continue supporting the product), and I assume that this has effectively totaled the computer. I'm basically on board for a new 13" Pro, either the current version or the Arrandale if it shows up soon. I know from experience that the data on the G3's hard disk is there, because I've had techs start up the G3 in target disk mode after logic board problems in the past. And although there are some files I'd like to have access to soon, I'm lucky in that there isn't anything I need to be able to access right away. I just have a couple of questions about upgrading I'm hoping you can help me with: 1) Will I have any extra problems using target disk mode with the iBook because of its age (either of the operating system, or the fact it's pre-Intel)? 2) Will I have any extra problems moving, say, my offline e-mail archive from Mail into the new computer or playlists from iTunes? 3) I know that files made in AppleWorks aren't compatible with iLife, and I had intended to turn them into .pdfs before upgrading to a new computer. Do I have any options for getting the data out of those files? 4) Are there any other things that I might run into that I should know about? Thanks in advance for any advice. Feeling pretty calm, but obviously this is going to be a pain in the neck.
