Hi Michele,

Haven't used Wegener myself but over the last few years that I have been on
the list several others have recommended them and I can't recall anyone
posting anything but good experiences with them in terms of time, price or

There are a lot of people like yourself that are very much enamoured with
the original iBooks either because of design or ergonomics for writing or
just because...

Sounds like you truly enjoy the clamshell, treat it to the upgrade it
deserves and with an organisation that is professional and that you find
sympathetic to Apple and iBooks and not to the 'local crew' if they are
going to soak you just because they can't be bothered to work and don't like
those 'pesky Apples'. Why not give Wegener and a few others a call to see
how they treat you on the phone and judge who gets your business based on
that experience.

In any case let us know how things work out whatever choice you make.
