The notebook is back. The iBook has returned.
They replaced the keyboard and fixed the ethernet port. All this was covered under AppleCare. Though, if I wouldn’t have called right after I got the thing, Apple would have said the ethernet port was my fault instead of their fault. It would have cost me $690. That would have been almost the entire cost of the computer.
BTW, buy refurbished Apple computers when you can. The savings are great, as long as you don’t need the latest and greatest.
