If the iBook is more rugged than a Powerbook, you must have to use
Powerbooks in a climate controlled padded room and touch them with
bubble wrap on your hands!
I figured a G4 Powerbook would be way more rugged since it's made out
of metal for crying out loud! when I got my first iBook I remember
being nervous about how the case would flex so much when you picked it
up by on corner.
I thought about that, but then an employee at an Apple store told me> My experience is the same as yours, except that I was 'lucky' enough to

that they'll fix anything (other than the screen) after warrany for
$350. I figured I'd rather pay $350 if and when I need it than pay
$300 upfront whether I use it or not.
How maddening that they built these new machines so poorly.
Thanks for the advise.
