    Not sure if this would be possible, but given the cube's logic board seems similar in size to the Macbooks, wondering if it would be possible to drop a macbook logic board in and run everything off the ports? (video, keyboard mouse). Any ideas?

    If the motherboards are indeed the same size I don't see why this wouldn't be possible. You might have to do a little fancy work to get all the ports set up right but, conceptually, I can't think of a reason it would be impossible (that's assuming the same size motherboard). The question is why would you want to do it?

    Why make a macbook Cube? Because you can drive the new Cinema LED Display from it and because there is no update to the Mac Mini (yet or never)?

    I think it is a cool idea.

    That would be a pretty cool case mod! I hope that you do it and take lots of detailed pictures too. If you are handy with a soldering gun, moving ports around shouldn't be that difficult to make it look factory - on the outside at least.
