    Maybe the hard drive... once it's reformatted, but nothing else.

    PowerBook G4=PATA

    MacBook Pro=SATA

    SATA≠PATA

    :confused:

    The optical drive MIGHT work on a non-unibody MBP. Powerbooks and non-unibody MBPs used ATA/IDE optical drives, so that might work.

    Otherwise, I can't think of anything.

    Take a look at the iFixit teardowns of early MBPs and later Powerbooks. iFixit lists the part numbers, so if they match they may well work. Offhand, I don't know.

    Unlikely the LCD would work given your Powerbook, which has, IIRC, 1280x854 resolution, right? And the screens are a different size--15.2" on the PB and 15.4" on the MBP.

    I highly doubt both.
    Besides, do you have the correct size of screen for both?
    And keyboard probably wont fit.
    Unless your talking about the non-unibody model.
    Then maybe
