not quite as good as I was hoping for, but at the end of the day, I'm getting a replacement.
so, the backstory, my 12" iBook G4 1GHz 30Gb 256Mb, Combo (did expand with airport + another 512Mb), is dead (see earlier posts)
After a bit of faffing and having to send it to the insurance company, they agree that it's dead, or "beyond economical repair". Thank you.
They are going to replace it with a current bottom of the range MacBook (13" 1.83GHz C2D, 512Mb, 60Gb, Combo), after we gave them the princely sum of £75 excess!!
I was hoping for the mid-range model (2.0GHz, 80Gb, Super), but they wouldn't budge on that, still it's a replacement laptop for essentially £75 instead of around £800, so that's not bad I suppose.
Oh and to get my old one back they're charging another £75 + VAT! damn them.
Should arrive Weds, so I should be unpacking on next weekend!
Currently most excited about: Built in iSight! :D
