    I have a mint condition 12" ibook g4 1.33 that need its logicboard replaced...can I use a 1.2 GHz 12" board?

    Everything seems pretty much the same except for harddrive plugin (ifixit show's on back of 1.2 board)

    @tom vilsack I believe that the bottom cases are identical, so you could install the board but aside from the hard drive plug in, the top cases are different. The 1.33 GHz 12" and 1.42 GHz 14" iBooks had a USB based trackpad with dual finger scrolling compared to the older ADB based trackpad. As a result, I believe the wiring connector is different.

    Thank you for the info...ill keep a look out on ebay for when one 1.33GHz board comes up at a reasonable price.
