Hey guys, my new iBook arrived safely today from its trip from Utah (expercom.com)

Everything looks great. OSX 10.2 was EASY to set up, and I just plugged in the ethernet cable and BAM! i was on. I LOVE IT! SO EASY!

Anyways, I have a few questions.

1.) How often do the logic boards fail? Do we have a percentage so far? Apple has that one FAQ page that has info on them replacing logic boards. Why do people complain? I thought apple would do it for free?

2.) what is safari, and how do i get it?


and darn, this 128 mb of ram is slowwwww. I definitely am ordering the 512 stick soon. the gain better be exponential!!

Otherwise, DVD player is smooth. 10.2 is MUCH smoother than i remember 10.1 being too!

Thanks guys!

Also guys...where can i find my serial number? is it on the iBook somewhere?

i want to know if my iBook will fall under the logic board recall. i have this gut feeling something bad will happen.

Click on the Apple in the menu bar, click "About This Mac", click "More Info", then look for "Serial Number:"

to find the number go to Apple>About this mac>more info. It should be on the first page that come up after the more info button. What are the specs on you G3?

I found my SN, thanks guys.

I have a 700 mhz combo drive iBook. 20gb hdd. currently only 128 mb ram (which OSX is slooooow on). I plan to drop in that 512 stick next week when i get paid, ha!

And it looks like i fall into that replacement program for the logic board. my SN is DEAD in the middle.

im so scared. i wouldnt know what to do if it happened to me. I mean, i only paid 550 for this iBook, and i heard repairs and a new logic board are super costly!

btw, safari is 10x better than explorer!

My logic board went out about 6 months after I got my used G3. I called Apple and they took care of it so fast. I sent it off on Wednesday and got it back Friday good as new. Never cost me a dime since it fell under the repair program.
