Apple is giving me a new MacBook...

...to replace my G4 iBook, Yeah Apple!

I was going to take it into the Apple Store to see if they would replace it since this would be the fourth time I've brought it in for the same problem, but instead I called Apple Customer Relations due to Racer X's urging, and i don't even have to leave the house now.
I reminded the rep that the extra RAM I have in the iBook won't work in the MacBook, so I got bumped up for the RAM, tomorrow I ship out the iBook, and get a new MacBook shipped straight from China.
This makes twice that Apple has replaced an old laptop with a new one, maybe this time will be the charm.

Of note, Applecare was due to run out at the end of June.
I did take out the Airport card, and the added memory.
Now do I sell it, or buy the Monster Daughter a used G4 iBook to replace her G3 iBook, use the parts in it if needed, and give the G3 iBook to Monster Son after I've modded it a bit (it has a busted bezel and hinge, already have the parts from thebinsky on eBay just need to find out what color to make the case [probably dark blue]), and put in a larger drive.

Awesome. You owe me....

And, most importantly, that laptop is considered a new purchase with respect to the warranty. Now pick up cheap Applecare from eBay or from LA Computer Company, and you will have a 3 year warranty on that.

LEADER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Applecare, don't keep a new Mac more than a year without it.

Oh no, I owe Racer X, maybe I'll overnight a Monster Stromboli to you, packed in dry ice of course. Pre made, just pop in the oven.

I seem to have a recurring screen problem, it starts to flicker, mostly when adjusted, and sometimes randomly, at times it just flickers and stays dimmer. right now it seems to have gotten to the dimmer stage and stayed there, with a little flickering.
