In fact, I myself have expierienced it...twice. The issue is with the logicboard on the icebook dual USBs, which causes various failures, including a black display when it is opened past a certain point (had this one; the backlight gives out when you open it past a certain point), harddrive failures, and other display issues, such as the screen being covered in lines (I've got this one right now). A picture of the last issue is available in the videos section of BlackCider.com.

We've all heard about the iPod lawsuits and the recent 15" Powerbook issue, but it's not the only apple related lawsuit brewing. Apple's iBook appears to have a little issue.
