Well, I am usually quite careful with my lovely iBook G4, but somehow one of my textbooks managed to take a nosedive right onto my keyboard the other day.

I was able to salvage the "I" key, but unfortunately the clip that holds it to the "scissors" is broken. So, I'm wondering if anyone here knows of a good place to find replacement keys for the iBook. Is it as simple as going to the Mac store and asking for a key?

I'd prefer to buy a replacement key at the most inexpensive price, but I honestly just want to be able to type with ease again.

Thanks so much for your help!

It doesn't hurt to go to a local store first, I guess. One of my keys broke off and I went to a nearby reseller and they just replaced the key for free.
