    Has any one install the 1.67 ghz High Definition LCD screen on a 1.5 or 1.33 PowerBook?

    More than likely it will not work. Without doing research, I will have to say the connectors will be different.

    The connectors are different. The only way to make it work is to get the 1.5 GHz high-res board along with the screen. The 1.67 GHz board will not work with your computer either.

    EDIT: nvm, just realized that only the 1.67 GHz model came with the high-res screen. You can't do it.

    That's pretty awesome. But it's not the one from the high-res PowerBook, right?

    Just want to make sure I wasn't mistaken.

    No, the one from the Hi-Res PB was only at 1440x960.
