Hi,
I have been browsing these forums for the better part of a year and finally decided to start a thread. I was wondering if it is possible to take a PowerBook g4 15 or 17 inch and take the screen from a previous generation 15 or 17 inch MBP, and put the MBP screen on the Powerbook g4. Would there have to be a special connection in the PowerBook for the iSight from the MBP screen to work, or would it work?
This has been on my mind lately and was just wondering if it is possible.
Thanks

A quick search through the web results that the PowerBook G4s used different aspect ratios and different screen resolutions than the previous generation MBPs. Therefore, I don't think it's quite possible.
