Hello everyone,

I recently acquired a 333Mhz Blueberry with OS 10.3. Currently I have a few hopes for it.

1. Is it possible to remove the integrated CRT and insert a 14" LCD?
2. Will a new hard drive and more memory speed up performance to a respectable degree? Currently it idles with about 2MB of memory free so I bet it's being slowed down by swapping so often.

Thanks!

It should be possible to get an LCD to work with it but you will have to find out what the connections are. A google search for that may help. Found this link on accelerate your mac with a modded iMac to Cube.

I have seen other nicer ones but don't know the links anymore.

The extra ram will help and the hard-drive will also, so long as the speed of the new drive is faster than the old one. If it's larger then the original 6-8-gig drive then you'll have to partition it if you want to install OSX which is also a good idea. Panther works the best on the 333's.
