    Okay so I just ordered a new Macbook bc the logic board in my iBook G4 failed, and the cost to repair was over the cost of the notebook by today's standards lol. So here's my question...What's a cool hack/use for the iBook G4 parts? I don't have the logic board remember, so straight computing uses are out. Any suggestions or ideas you've seen for using the parts, ie the case or screen or hard drive, etc?

    Hook me up!

    Use the HD as a backup/extra storage drive?

    Carefully remove the G4 from the logic board and make a keychain from it? I did that with my old 68040 from our Performa 577 before we tossed it out. Just had to file down the pins, they were pretty sharp, haha
