PB FixIt, maker of the revolutionary Fixit Guide series, has changed their name to iFixit.

Explaining the move, iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens said, “Why are we changing names? A few reasons. The first: iFixit sounds cooler. Secondly, Apple is discontinuing the PowerBook name and we want to stay relevant to all Mac owners. But most important, we want to keep our options open. Our team is working incredibly hard to improve our product line and develop the Fixit Guide series.”
iFixit’s revolutionary do-it-yourself laptop repair manuals, the Fixit Guide Series, will continue to be free online at www.iFixit.com/Guide.
iFixit also announced the expansion of its online products. “I’m proud to announce that we have over 600 different Mac parts and upgrades in-stock and ready to ship. We couldn’t be more excited about our market position,” said Kyle Wiens.

If you need to take apart a PowerBook, say to upgrade a hard drive or something, you really should download one of their FixIt guides. They’re free and available for the following computers:
- Mac Mini
- PowerBook G3 (233 – 500 MHz)
- iBook G3 (300 – 900 MHz)
- iBook G4 (800 MHz – 1.42 GHz)
- PowerBook G4 Titanium (400 MHz – 1 GHz)
- PowerBook G4 Aluminum (867 MHz – 1.67 GHz)
