WTB: iBook 12" LCD - 02/21/07 06:03 PM

The LCD on my G3 12" iBook has a visual defect on it that, while not affecting usability, is driving me insane. I'd love to replace it, does anyone have a spare in good condition that they are willing to sell me?

I've got one in great condition, but I don't know how much I would sell it for...

I may not need it any more - the power port on this machine doesn't work either (or it's the adapter) so I'm sending it in for an RMA.


I do need an original Airport card though, if anyone has one.

Instead of paying around 100-120 $ for an original airport card, buy an Orinoco Wavelan Silver card on ebay, strip it down to the essentials, remove internal antenas etc. and use that. Works perfectly!

I happen to have that very card in his DIY guide - when he says it's a tight fit it is one hell of a tight fit though, the keyboard bends up by a good 2-3mm frown
