    Hey,

    Ive had a dead Core Duo (2.0GHz?) White Macbook for a while, just sitting on the top of a cupboard for a while with a stuffed logic board. I dont want to sell it cos it will only fetch around 50 bucks and I dont want to chuck it...

    I would like to turn it into something interesting, perhaps something that has already been done so I can mod it from a tutorial? Is there anything out there like this?

    Cheers,
    drummerguy

    You could pop off the lid and make it into an Apple-tastical clock.

    You could part it out and sell the individual parts on eBay or something. Generally a totally dead Mac can be made into a little more cash that way than just selling it outright.

    Agreed. You can probably get $50 alone for the screen assembly.

    i would either part out the pieces to make the most $$$ or just wire the screen and a battery to be an lcd monitor..
