Ever since about two months ago, my iBook hasn't charged properly. You have to wiggle around the AC adapter until it's finally "happy" and then starts to charge. I took it to the Apple Store yesterday so they would diagnose it. I hoped it wouldn't be a broken DC-in board but according to the Mac guy, he said it was. I could open up the laptop myself and replace it (for about $20), but I'm building a Hack Pro now and I'd rather not have to go through the trouble of opening up the ibook. I was wondering how much you guys think it's worth:


12" iBook G4

1.2Ghz PowerPC processor


OS X 10.4



Comes with battery (practically brand new, I got it through the recall program recently), AC adapter, original box, and reinstall disks (I have them lying around somewhere...)


The computer has been treated well. It was purchased in late Decemeber of 2004. I'll probably end up keeping it unless someone offers enough to make letting it go worth it. If there's any information I'm missing, let me know! Oh, and I'll post pictures if anyone cares to have a look.
