Yes, but it's not worth it. The screen in that iBook is basically worthless: it's a small, not very good screen. You're better off spending any money on a slightly better display that–if nothing else–is larger. However, if you really feel like it, you can do so. First, you'll need to identify what display you have. Run the command ioreg -lw0 | grep ...

First step: Diagnosing Hardware vs Software Problem See description in sameetandpotatoes's answer above http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/98572/112709 Disclaimer: doing any repair on your own will cancel any warranty you have with Apple.

I think is due to temperature difference. I have no problem using it in Australia for many years. I was in northern Sweden (Umea) last year December and I found this weird screen appear. I asked Apple Sweden and they said it might be due to extreme difference in temperature that cause this. Northern Sweden was -11 on Christmas period. Well... I think if you ...

XCode playgrounds are quite slow currently and sometimes they get blocked for no apparent reason (the processing spinner spins indefinitely). This is true for me on a 2015 Macbook Pro and a 2009 Macbook Pro. I think there is quite a chance that it will be no better on a Macbook. I think, however, that this is largely a software problem and it will take more ...
