    Hi guys,I am thinking of repairing my ibook (800Mhz G3 12') .
    It had the ati graphics problem,then I heat it up,no good,went to a university to "re-solder" (I don't know for sure) but no luck (I think it may even got too hot when I tried fixing it).
    The question is where is the best place to buy a logicboard "cheap" and if possible with warranty?I only see board with 14 days warranty @75eur with shipping for portugal..14days is too low :S

    Other possibility is getting a faulty one that that has not been repaired,and repair it on ebay,with a user that offers 1year warranty (100% feedback),any options here?because lots of users tend to try the "heat" process and then it may damage the board just like I did...
    Opinions and suggestions needed :)
    If anyone has a deffective g3 800Mhz logicboard to give/sell please tell me :)
    Help saving an ibook g3 :)

    It may not be worth it to fix, if that is the case. You may be able to get another machine, maybe even a G4 for that price.

    the latest machine that I saw was a pb g4..and it was 300eur..and it was a "good " price..
    my ibook is mint,I don't mind giving 80eur for "good" dead logicboard + repair + shipping,but can't seem to find one "cheap"...
    oh..and I am waiting for the "new" mbp,so it was somehow "stupid" throwing 300eur in other latop..but 80eur is +- good for repairing a mint ibook :) for me off course..
    Aren't there anyone that would like to giveaway one dead-but not repaired logicboard for my ibook g3?:D

    thanks for the tips :)
    they are both too much money for my taste :(

    110eur for the fist and about 135eur for the second..without shipping :S
    I'll guess I have to search ebay..
