    ok, so is it possible to put all the internals of a 12" ibook into the shell and LCD of a 14"? the reason I ask is because I have a 12" that the LCD went out, but the logic board andf harwaare are all fine and have the ability to buy a 14 with a bad logic board. So, can the swap be made with ease?

    so no one knows?
    i would think the only difficulty would be some mounting points, and im sure that can be worked around.

    I guess it depends on your definition of "ease."

    In my book, this doesn't fit the bill. Sure, it's probably possible, but I can't imagine there wouldn't be an awful lot of dremeling, and I suspect that any false move would result in incapacitating your little project. If you already had both computers, it might a fun project to try, but the fact that you'd be spending the money on the 14-incher makes it sound like a big risk.
