    Then break it open, take out the good hard drive, and put in your broken HDD, while voiding the warantee on both machines! :)

    However, you would still be able to send your iBook for repairs under your warranty !

    it's a pain to get the hard drive out of the clam shell ibooks, not quite as hard on the newer ibooks. if you can get the hard drive out you can get a laptop IDE to standard IDE adapter to hook up the drive to a mac tower and get the data off.
