add me to the list Powerbook G4 - serial number W8510######
just discovered the widely-known defect on this $3000 laptop, Apple Care long expired
haven't seen anything this disappointing this since my $3000 G5 tower coolant leaked coolant all over my logic board and ruined that machine
of course 800-my-apple no longer wants to talk about this issue either (they did just proposition me for a $49 charge to discuss it, tho)
Apple Customer Relations 1-800-767-2775 is a higher level of appeal. You probably have to be in North America to use this line.
However, as the extension program that covered this failure expired so long ago, I doubt there will be much relief gained from that contact either.
