    Hello everybody,

    I was just remembering how cool the iMac G4 looks and I thought that it would be neat to put a G5 or later logic board in it. I know the iMac G5's board it a different shape, so that may not work. But if that wouldn't work could I put a Mac mini logic board in there?

    I know they made up to a 20'' model, but I'd like to know if I can go bigger to at least 22'' and ideally 24''.

    Any input is appreciated!

    I think a mac mini would fit well, definitely not an iMac though.

    Thanks. I'll try to find the dimensions of the logic board of both.

    Thanks. It doesn't seem too hard. The 20'' idea doesn't seem that out there either. I'll see if I can pick one up somewhere with a busted logic board cheaply.
