The iBook G4 is ailing

  1. Thanks for this post – I’m looking at the daunting task of replacing the HD in my 5-year old 14-in dual USB iBook. Don’t really need a new computer right now, so I’m going to take a stab at it. Certainly will be cheaper than buying new.

  2. I once performed the same repair on my 12″ iBook G4. I have since given the computer to my brother and purchased a new MacBook. (I know, sorry. I’m a CS student and have to have something faster.) Anyway, I managed to do the teardown twice – the second time because I left an essential piece out when I put it back together – and the computer has worked faithfully ever since. So yes, it can be done.
