I have a G3 "dual USB" iBook, 700Mhz, with the Airport card. (384MB, 
10GB drive, CDROM)

It has a funky problem where it works for a while, but if you shift the 
laptop it will flake out and show weird lines on the screen.  At that 
point you have to turn the machine off.

It appears, from what I can tell on the web, that the graphics chip on 
the motherboard, suffers from loose connections, and that careful 
heating of the chip can cause the chip to properly reseat itself.

I am not as handy with laptops as I thought I was... available for 
parts or repair, $125 plus shipping.  The Airport card alone is worth 
about half that.
