I finally got the iBook off to Airborne Express, with a couple of ideas swirling around in my head. If the iBook is indeed dead , dead logic board, screen, etc, then I wonder if they would trade for a refurb eMac?
I tried one last, albeit futile, attempt at starting the iBook up. Nothing would even power on, this time. It would at least chime when I was on the phone with Apple Support. It’s dead. It’s no more. It’s not even pining for the fjords.
