Applecare bites

Finally received a G4 non-DVI LCD to repair a friend's tibook today. Apple's design for the hinges is lacking any structural integrity and repairability forethought so what should be a $200 hinge repair requires the whole screen to be swapped. I'm sure the poor engineering choices were due to the designers wanting a nice thin display. Too bad Apple decided to epoxy the whole LCD mess together so you can't repair it without damaging the casing and LCD panel.
