Some products appeal to logic. Others, such as the Apple iBook, appeal to the senses. Sure, the iBook is a hefty notebook with a price tag to match. But it looks pretty darn cool, and that fact -- along with a few nice features -- helps explain why the iBook is one the most popular laptops sold in retail, especially among students.

Logicboard error only in white iBooks

The iBook Clamshell series was replaced in 2001 by the new white iBook. But soon Apple had to face a growing number of complaints about logicboard failures.

The Expanded iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program was a worldwide program covering repair or replacement of the logic board in iBook models manufactured between May 2001 and October 2003 that are experiencing specific component failures - it ended in July 2007.

The program was available for certain iBook G3 models (see below for a complete list) with serial numbers in the following range:

UV117XXXXXX to UV342XXXXXX

iBooks with the serial numbers listed above may be referred to as:

  • iBook (16 VRAM)
  • iBook (14.1 LCD 16 VRAM)
  • iBook (Opaque 16 VRAM)
  • iBook (32 VRAM)
  • iBook (14.1 LCD 32 VRAM)
  • iBook (800MHz 32 VRAM)
  • iBook (900MHz 32 VRAM)
  • iBook (14.1 LCD 900MHz 32 VRAM)
  • iBook (Dual USB)
  • iBook (Late 2001)
  • iBook (14.1 LCD)

The iBook Clamshell series never had any quality issues. If you're looking for a long lasting notebook, choose a Clamshell.
