Okay, I've spent most of last night and this morning reading about how iBooks are dropping like flies. The logic board is crapping out. Is this happening to all iBooks, regardless of the processor? <br><br>What about power books?<br><br>The thread killer

My 12" PB is a year old today. No problems other than the feet falling off and the power adapter that went south. Both remedied for free at an Apple store. I am not aware of any problems with this model. <br><br>
I got an ibook on ebay right before Christmas...before I even realized there was an ibook problem.<br>Now I am sick to my stomach wondering when it is going to happen to mine. It is a May 2002 model and when I got it, it was out of warranty.<br>Right now, it is great and no problems what so ever.<br>But i cringe every time my daughter picks it up to use, and I have to refrain myself from saying.<br>"Please be careful. Pick it up and hold it level.<br>Don't pick it up from one side.<br>Be careful opening up the lid.<br>Be careful pulling the power cord out."<br>I feel like a broken record.<br>I keep it opened on my desk and put it manually to sleep.<br><br><br>My Stuff
I totally feel for you. I think the uncertainty and waiting for something to happen can be worse than when it really dies.<br><br>Even now, after 10 minutes of rebooting, I fear using the left side of the keyboard or anything that will kill it again.<br><br>The thread killer
Now that I'm past my initial anger and shock that Apple has no problem screwing it's customers, I'm considering a PowerBook. Why? Too many reasons to list, but the ones at the top of the list are that I'm hoping my next one will be one of the models that are crap free. Another is that my dislike of PC's is greater than Macs. <br><br>I hear a lot of people have good history with PowerBooks, too. I would still get a 12" because battery life is most important to me.<br><br>The thread killer
