    :)

    Would the internals of the 15" MBP fit inside a 12" case? Are the internals of the powerbooks completly different, so they could fit it in there.. :rolleyes:

    Umm.. I'm guessing no since things that are 15" don't fit into 12" things very well, with the 3" of extra computer and all.

    I could be wrong though.

    i believe the logic board (the main piece to which everything is attached) is the width/depth of the computer with different pieces either soldered to it or placed in where they fit (socketed). therefore, it would impossible to fit the innards of a 15" MBP into a 12" case.

    Not gonna happen. The machines are set up too differently. :eek:

    You might be able to get it into a 17" case though...

    Not to mention the heat issue.

    The MBP doesn't need more heat issues.

    If that can be done, I bet Apple would have made it available to us already.
