    Does anyone know if I can swap a VGA Tibook LCD screen onto a DVI Titanium Powerbook? Is the higher resolution in the screen set up itself?

    I actually wouldn't mind at all if it would work because I actually like the lower res screens of the earlier tibooks. Just wondering if it can be done.. and I don't mean taking out the actual LCD screen itself from the Tibook case and frame, I mean actually SWAPPING the LCDs and plugging them in.

    I just wonder if the older LCD could be plugged into the logic board or not. It seems that they would fit the case.

    Thanks -- I'd really like a faster DVI Tibook with the lower res screen because the font sizes are larger.

    Don't waste your money, just make the font sizes bigger in System preferences.

    Tried it. Doesn't work unless you know something I don't!

    Anyway, I'm still wondering if a VGA screen can hook up to a DVI machine?

    Don't count on it. I know that the VGA screen don't work in ALBooks but the DVI ones do. It may work butr from thatr experience I tend to doubt it.
