141. Yeah, I think I was talking about Apple Motherboard Problems
Every idiot knows that an ATA hard drive are the same in Macs or Dells. Optical drives are the same, RAM modules are usually the same. But if you need a Power Supply or Motherboard, you have to find a specific part that will only fit that model. And if you do, they are very pricey. It is cheaper to but another MAC than to have a motherboard replaced in an Apple iBook.

If you get a Mac, get the Three Year Apple Care warranty, it will be worth every penny, expecially if you buy a laptop.

Besides, if a Dell needs a new motherboard, (out of all the PCs I have to support, only one out of 200 needed a new MB, in warranty) I can buy them for about 50 bucks, if the machine was out of warranty. But I have had at least 80 apple motherboards replaced out of about 200 machines. Most of them were iBooks. I am glad we had Apple Care.
