This may sound very silly, but I would think it nice if we started a thread where we discusses how many times we've had our iBook logic boards replaced.

Here goes.

Ibook 800, logic board replaced twice.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but are all iBooks affected by this or just the G3 versions? I have a G4 iBook and am considering Applecare but....It's so freakin' expensive. Any thoughts??

I haven't heard of many G4 iBooks failing; the majority of iBook logic board failures are, however, on the G3 line.

Yeah, good to know. I was a victim of the failure on a previous iBook but crossed my fingers when I bought this one. I had hoped that the problem was fixed in the newer versions, but...

Just another note. I ended up selling my previous iBook for parts and ended up making more money had I sold it used and purchased AppleCare. That is, unless a 'parts' iBook would lose me more than $450, it's just not worth the trouble buying AppleCare.

Then again...

I just bought my parents a new G3 933 on clearance. I would assume this is one of the ones that might have problems?

Funny thing happened to it yesterday that worried me a little bit....my husband was surfing the net....and everything was totally normal...and then all of the sudden the screen went black interspersed with the flickering colour of the screen. So he closed the lid and asked me WTF?! So I opened the lid and it was a black screen with white foreign computer text all down it. The only word I recognized was "kernal".

Was this a kernal panic or a logic board glitch?

With foreign language, Kernal Panic. "Shut down your computer."
