Hi everyone. I'm some jackass who has a hope and a dream that I might be able to walk around town with a lime clamshell "G3"-series laptop that would actually be a MacBook inside. I've wanted a clamshell iBook since I first saw one when I was about 7 in Legally Blonde. Sadly, the clamshell's usefulness was already caput by the time I was old enough to actually need a computer (nevermind a laptop). I'm 18 now and I have some time... a tiny bit of knowhow... and a dream. I have a white unibody intel core duo MacBook. It's the 2.0 GHz model from 2006, with 512 MB od 667 MHz DDR2 ram. It has the superdrive and it has a after-purchase 160gb HD in it. It has tiger on it. It's been kind of beaten up (cracks all over the case) and it's getting kind of old-ish, a little slow (probably due to only 512mb of ram)... and I want to put it inside a clamshell case. I don't know anything about computer innards, but I know a little bit about how to sodder. I really want to make this work. Will anyone help? I'm hoping someone with a passion for vintage macs is willing to be my leader in this, tell me what I can and can't use. I have many questions and will need a lot of help. For starter's info, it doesn't matter to me what the end capability of the computer is as long as it is an internet-capable machine with the speed and hard drive of the MacBook. i.e., I don't care if the hard drive works. I don't care if it has the old resolution of the clamshell. I would like either the audio jack and at least on USB to work. I would like AirPort to work. I would like the trackpad to work. Can I use the clamshell's display, power source, and keyboard? Can I simply pull out the clamshell's motherboard and sodder the macbook's in exactly how it was... then replace the ram with the clamshell's ram... then replace the hard drive... and then skip home? Is the best approach to try and switch macbook components into the clamshell... or should I just gut the clamshell completely, gut the macbook, and try to fit everything into the clamshell (shouldn't be hard since it's bigger)? I know it might be hard, but it can't be TOO hard - I mean, PC guys simply go out and buy a case and fill it with whatever the heck they want.
