    Our actions define our legacy
    Recently my BlackBook'06 1,1 SATA Controller for the HDD died. Instead of grabbing a new Sata Connector, I would rather upgrade the logicboard since I will have to take the entire macbook apart.

    Until that day, I am gonna use my PowerBook G4. I would like to take the Airport Extreme out of my BlackBook and put it in the PowerBook since I get horrible connection with the Airport that is currently installed.

    Would this work?

    The cards are totally different. The only card that will work in an iBook is the Airport Extreme card. It's about the size of three credit cards stacked together.

    PowerBook G4s after the TiBooks use mini-PCI cards (basically, only the Airport Extreme 802.11g), the Macbooks mini-PCIe. Not in the least interchangeable.
