    Can anybody point me in the direction of successful transplants of a MacBook intel 2.2Ghz into a iMac G4 carcass?

    I have a WhiteBook 2007 that is disintegrating at the screen hinge and wonder whether a transplant might be feasible, and into an iMac G4, beautiful?

    The board shape and port locations are so different that it won't work.

    . . . without considerable modification.

    But has anyone done anything similar? I've seen an old G4 populated with a custom set up on You Tube.

    How about a Mac Mini?

    Has any one hooked a Man Mini up inside an old G4 shell to utilise the screen?

    There's an old thread about it in the PPC Macs forum....do a search there.
