    Hi guys,
    I have a dead pre-iSight iMac G5 in my basement (the psu is blown) and so I was thinking, maybe I could take it apart and use the nice looking case as the body of something else? I though I could take apart a Mac Mini and mount it inside, and then try to get it to connect to the screen...
    Any thoughts on this? Should I try to fit PC parts in there and make a Hackintosh out of it?

    I think putting in a mac mini would be to daunting. What you could do if you really wanted to spend the money is
    -open her up
    -gut the interior
    -replace everything in there with a single new lcd or led panel
    -have the cable run out of one of the port cables

    Now you have two options:
    1) attach a mac mini and have it sit below
    2) use it as a dock for a laptop
