    Unhappy 800mhz LCD vs. 1.33ghz display
    This has probably been answered before, but I'm having a hard time finding it. I had an old 12" Ibook G4 800 that I had an extra LCD for, and I've recently acquired the bottom half of a 12" 1.33ghz ibook. Upon tearing the display apart, I noticed the inverter cables are different. If I bought the cables, would I still be able to use it? My 1.33 cable slides perfectly into the slot behind the lcd, but the power/airport/bluetooth are exceedingly different.

    Can I buy these parts to make my 1.33 work?

    I had the same issue. I found a bunch of G4 LCDs for cheap and the inverter cable was different. I found the right one and didn't have a problem.
    This was over a year ago that I did the LCD swap but from what I remember, the inverter cable is the only one to worry about. The rest should work because they do not need to be removed or disconnected from the panel when you swap the LCD.

    Thumbs up
    Cool cool cool.

    Sorry about being antsy, I got all these parts and a touch of OCD to deal with.
