|iBook Clamshell defects: Part 3 - The DC Plug|
User often reported on a cable break near the DC Plug of the YoYo Power adapter. If you continue to use the adapter the DC-in board or the logicboard of the iBook might be damaged, so look for a cheap third-party power adapter which is available for 20$ on ebay. Hobbyists exhibited several methods of repair 1 - 2 - 3
Tangerine? Is it the fact that Tangerine is among the least popular choices of color for the iMac, or just the fact that its ugly that Apple chose it to be half the color options for the iBook? Very strange indeed although Steve Jobs' choices have proven fairly on track so far. :-)
While many had hoped the iBook would be priced a little cheaper than US$1600, when you consider the feature set, it is a great price indeed. There are no comparable Wintel laptops with anywhere near the power of a 300 MHz G3 in that price range. The iBook will be a huge success. Not "could" be, "will" be.
