Some problems with the iBook G3 were widespread enough that there was a
warranty extension. It covered through march of this year *or* three
years from the date of purchase, do your unit might be covered. (I
would have hoped the tech at the Apple store would have looked it up;
he might have.)
Here are the details:
If it isn't covered, then the tech is right -- it's definitely not
worth spending any significant repair money on at this stage. And the
problem probably *will* recur on the old machine.
That said, the iBook G4 is a much better machine on many levels, and
it's much faster and more capable. My wife has one of the first 12" G4
models, and couldn't be happier with it. It's really an amazing
machine for the price.
