I just noticed that the ibook on the bottom and on some areas on the top looks like the white paint inside the ibook is thining...or look like black streaks

It is very noticeable, at first you think its the light, but then u notice its as if the inside is fading away and i am losing the whiteness

Which model is it ? I've got a ibook G3 800mhz and it still looks great. Sounds really strange, like the paints not hardened, could you post a photo of it ?

the inside looks as if it was running paint...i know its from the inside, nothing from the outside...something is going on...see black voids.. that are very smooth and big.
on the bottom i have 3 black streaks that are 4 inches in length that are as wide as 1-2mm
on the back of the screen, at the edge, it looks like every other cm is black then white
