Not yet. I haven't had the time. I've also thought about trying to hook it up to an external monitor to eliminate other possibilities.

Screen flickering on my iBook G4

The screen on my iBook G4 is starting to very faintly flicker when there is the slightest movement on the laptop (e.g., typing with the laptop on my lap). My suspicion is that the display ribbon or...

I don't know about that. From what I've been reading, Touches will NEVER come with 2.0 installed. Apparently several people over at Mac Rumors have called Apple numerous times as well as having asked...

Adjusting (or replacing) the mouse button?

I got a "new-to-me" iBook G4 today, and I find the mouse button click be very loud, snapping, and plastic-y sounding, whereas the one on my G3 was much quieter and not so sharp sounding. It makes it...

Changing the design of Firefox?

I just downloaded the newest version of Firefox, and I really don't care for the design (of the buttons and so forth). Is there anyway to change it?

How should I do it then? My understanding was that I would just have the G4 on, and I would turn the G3 off and then back on holding the correct button to enter TargetDisk mode. At that point, the G3...

One last question (I think):

I can transfer data from the G3 to the G4 via a fireware cable in target disk mode, correct? Do you happen to know off hand what type of firewire port is in the G4...

Also, how can I find out what model number the laptop is (for my own reference)?

Thank you for all of your help.

I ended up snagging a G4 iBook (1.33 GHz, 512 MB RAM, combo, 60 GB HDD) for $385 shipped. I think I got a pretty good deal. How hard is it to add extra RAM into...

I'm mainly looking for something that will last me a bit longer than my G3. It's getting on the old-side, and I need something that will last at least another year or two.

Otherwise, the G3 does...
