    I explained that I was planning to let this computer run until it dies

    Sounds like you're there now, doesn't it. The $500 you save on not repairing the iBook G4 gets you half way to a new MacBook.
    anyone know what the estimated value of an iBook G4 (early 2004 w/ super drive) is?

    In its present condition it may not be worth very much. You can strip it down and sell parts on eBay for a few dollars. Or you can donate it to someone who repairs them and donates them to charity. If interested in the latter drop an email to spudnuty (Richard).

    I think you will love the new MacBook and wonder why you waited.

    I'm expecting to get a new macbook pro for christmas this year.

    It's worth the wait, and I know you will love it. However, being stuck with a "pile of junk" makes the wait more difficult.

    All's well with me--just been busy down at the Texas coast helping out while my Dad recovered from a bout of pneumonia.

    Thanks for asking!

    Ok, enough of the banter, right? Well, hope you can limp along with the old iBook until Christmas. If we can be of any support before it arrives, do give a holler.

    And thanks for leaving feedback in Apple Discussions. I don't think we solved anything, except to determine that a new Intel Mac is the solution.
