    As you can see from my signature ive upgraded just about everything. What you dont see is that i replaced the keyboard with a g3 ibook keyboard and i replaced the white apple with bruce willis from the die hard dvd cover lol. I would like to add a superdrive next and i want to replace the white keys with black keys from a tibook if i can ever find them at a decent price. I got this computer a few months ago and it has so far cost me 250. What ibooks are you guys running and what are your specs/mods?

    Nice. I want to put a g3 top case on mine so i could remove the paint and paint it black. Not sure if it will fit though. That or cut a new design to replace the apple logo.

    When my girlfriend bought a new MacBook Pro she donated her iBook G4 to me. It's the 2004 1.2GHz 12". It is my designated sofa computer. Runs 10.5 quite well also.

    The RAM is maxed out to 1.25GB and it still has the stock 60GB HD. Great machine.

    you can't remove the paint from the top case (you can for the rest of the case tho) just spray it, thats what i did.

    Ive done it before. The g3s were clear plastic painted white on the inside. Some rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush and youre good to go. What im not sure of is if it will fit on a g4.

    Same idea with the side panels on all the G4 towers. Paint on the inside that some have removed.

    An example:
