I have had trouble losing the letters off the keyboard of my IBook G4. The first time it happened, just over a year after I bought it in 2005, Apple agreed to replace it free. When it did it again, less than a year later and I went back to Apple to suggest that this might be a design or technical fault, the customer services woman I finally tracked down in Ireland said that, considering my machine was out of warranty, the company had been very generous in letting me have a free keyboard the first time, but that they certainly were not prepared to do so again. She offered no explanation as to why the letters have disappeared (e, t, a have gone completely now; i,h,s l,n are barely visible; and r,s,d,h,l are disappearing fast; ditto much of the punctuation. Very soon I shall have a completely blank board!), and I am wondering if I am alone in this affliction?
