What is your goal here...to install this Intel logic board into your Powerbook G4?
- How do you know it will fit?
- All logic boards for Apple laptops made in at least the last 10 years have the cpu's soldered directly onto the logic board.
Finally...even if this logic board swap did work. Since you would be using non-Apple hardware...it's illegal (against Apple's EULA) to install the Mac OS on it. This basically means it's a "hackintosh"...which we do not discuss at Mac-Forums!
I advise skipping this project...and just purchase a used MacBook.
