    Hi,

    I was wondering if it was possible for the new ibook g4 keyboard (12inch model) to work on the older ibook g3 (12inch) models? My keyboard is messed up a bit so I figured if I had to get a new keyboard, why not get a better one. Thanks for any help.

    I don't know. Depends on if the G3's keyboard was ADB or not. I know the new ones have to be USB, but I am unsure of the G3.

    Sorry, I meant the internal keyboard. I figured the ribbon would be the same? Just wondering if the dimensions are the same? Anyone know.
