Do you buy parts?

I have replaced the main board once but I am not going to do that again. I've removed the hard drive for the last time and wanted to know if you are interested in buying the other components. I put it completely back together just without the hard disk inside. The screen, the battery, the keyboard, the case.... everything else is in great condition. It will boot and run for weeks and then will not boot up without the "please recycle power" screen. The last time it happened a couple years ago, I was told it was the main board and replaced it and the problem went away. This time, I'm just going to part it out and wanted to know if you buy parts.

Is this a good question?

Thanks for the reply. I bought the airport card and replaced it as well as the second attempt to fix. That fix lasted off and on for a while and since I really needed/wanted wireless internet I purchased a newer laptop and have used this one as a backup but now it won't book again so I am looking for something to do with it and thought you guys may want it for parts.

This ibook model (the 1.33 12") has a problem with the airport/bluethoot slot on the logic board causing kernel panick at boot up or during operation when the ibook is warm. Taking off the airport/bluethoot card will solve the problem but you'll lose the wireless and bluethoot functions. You can still use internet linked via the ethernet port or via a USB 2.0 dongle for the wireless.
