    I was wanting to know if anyone knows where I can buy clear replacement cases for the iBook G4 12" or 14" models.

    You can't just buy a replacement case. The only clear iBook cases were on prototype mac's which are pretty much impossible to find anywhere. There are some places in Japan where you can make a custom case but other than that you are out of luck

    You could buy a G3 iBook case and try to get the G4 iBook in there - those cases were made from transparent plastic that was painted white from the inside I believe...

    yea, but the G3 where not slot loading cd-rom drives they where tray loaded. so there would be a huge gap there, i ordered me a set of G3 plastic for 30 dollars off of a guy and gonna see what i can do with it.

    Hmmm, maybe you can add a see-through window there or something.

    I'd check out some pc case modding sites for ideas...
