    I'm not up to buying a new iBook G4, but is it possible (and cheaper) to take a Clamshell and taking out the G3 processor, 3 gig HD, and CD drive and replace it with a G4, <10 gig HD, and a CD burning drive? :confused:

    would be an expensive and time consuming mod
    you'd need to get a new motherboard for the G4 most likely and modding it to fit the case of the clamshell would be hard

    In your head.
    Good luck.
    Do you want to buy my Tangerine iBook.
    It has a cracked screen and shows it's ware, but everything else works.
