    Knowing nothing about this I would just speculate that the answer would be no.

    Apple has a very bad habit of changing connectors between models. Physically the LCD might fit, but you probably could not get it connected.

    Again, pure speculation. I don't know.

    Unlikely. The best chance would be between the iSight G5 iMac and the early 2006 white Intell iMac.

    Thanks to all of you guys. I had a feeling it wouldnt. Hmm there goes my brilliant idea !

    ...the specs are as almost as u mentioned intell. My g5 is an eyesight 1.9, while the model i was trying to obtain was 2.0 intel.

    It is ironic that they use the same inverter though...

    Did you purposely write IntelL with a extra L since that's your username :eek::)

    Why, for simply defining "lame"? Your use does fit definition #2.

    I know what the word means. I was asking why he is using it towards Intell as it is rather lame to pick on other members here.

    The last time I checked, this forum was for discussing PowerPC Mac computers and not your opinion on others' usernames.

    That was a comment and there are hundreds of thousands of comments everywhere on MacRumors.

    Sometimes comments start a ridiculous subordinate discussion, like this. They make threads complicated.

    Please, End of ridiculous subordinate discussion! Otherwise the thread gets even more complicated!


    Well actually I think this thread is already resolved...... so whatever :p

    Ok then, you can set this thread to resolved. Click "Edit" and "Go Advanced" and change prefix. Though it should be more obvious than that... It would be fixed when MR switches to XenForo.
