I was speaking to a guy today who claims to have built a 12" ibook, black of course, with the specs of the 14" version. Says he got everything off ebay and it only set him back a total of $430.00, went on to explain all the fitments and modifications it took to get it to work. If it were possible to build a 12" ibook on your own with 14" parts, why the hell hasn't the rest of the world started doing this? If this can actually be done, I might look into it for my girlfriend...she's broke and I can't necessarily drop a grand to get her a real one. p.s. he's also convinced that he can put it all in an alienware case pretty soon...wtf?
