    I know it's ancient tech... but I've reverted to a 12" PB after selling my uni MacBook.

    I've owned two of these 12" PB 1.5ghz previously, both bought new (combo+60gb hd/superdrive +80gb) and the latter one cost me some bad business deal points because I was in a meeting outside in the sunlight and I could not read the screen. I sold it with Applecare to someone on MR last year.

    The one I bought is used, obviously, and the screen is "fine" no dead pixels or cracks or anything, it just will only be workable inside.

    Does anyone have any tips on the brightest or best screen replacement I can get for this? This one has a build date of August 2005 so it's been around, though in great condition. A bit "dim" and it might be worth it if I could get a new screen that is somewhat brighter.

    Any ideas or anyone have any experience with this?

    I do not think there are any brighter screens available for the PowerBook 12". Every website I have looked at has stock OEM screens available. However!!!! I did search eBay and found some stuff. I managed to find a lot of screens for the 12", for a good price! They make glossy/matte displays that fit the 12", but not sure on the brightness and such.
