    Hi,

    I have an old Powerbook G4 17" and I want to mod it. My idea is to buy a broken Macbook Air / Pro laptop and use its motherboard on the Powerbook's case.

    Will I be able to use the G4 screen on the Macbook Air motherboard?
    How about the battery?
    And the keyboard/trackpad?


    Some Nice user told me this:


    Is there a way to find an adapter or make a diy embedded circuit to be able to properly charge the old one? If there isn't a way, can I use a Mackbook Pro compatible battery?

    For the display, can I use a CCFL to LED adapter?



    Thanks!

    Though I'd never be able to do this myself, I'm fascinated by the idea of it, and the proposed responses, given the battery dead Powerbook 160 that I still have (Force Touch? BAH! I have a ROLLER BALL! I was a demon on that baby!)
