    i have a powerbook titanium with the black keyboard.
    Could you replace the black keyboard with the gray keyboard from a regular powerbook?
    will it fit and will it work?

    Also can i replace it with the gray keyboard that that lights up?
    if i connect it will it light up?

    please help thanks

    Define "regular" PowerBook? You mean the later Aluminum version? The predecessor G3 version?

    I presume the former, because the G3s were black. And no, you cannot.

    No, you cannot put an AlBook keyboard on a TiBook.

    No; I've taken an old TiBook and an AlBook apart; the parts are not interchangable.
