How much abuse can an iBook take?

1. One broken AC adaptor (out of warranty)
2. One burned AC adaptor (3 months old, replaced under warranty)
3. One FILTHY keyboard, missing 5 keys and with bent retainer clips (out of warranty).

Now the goddamn LCD backlight is acting up. I don't know if a connector is lose, or a ground or whatever the hell, but the backlight is shutting off on its own.

CRAP.

And still, I love my iBook to death. Hell, I love it so much I am buying another one in a week or so. The sad thing is I may have to send this one to the shop, so for a week or so my wife won't be able to "inherit" this iBook. Dammit.
