    Question iBook Clamshell Mod / Rebuild
    I would like to know if it is at all possible to take the shell of an old clamshell and refit it with all the new parts of a macbook / macbook pro. I see it as possible but the processor is still a part of the logic board, so I don't know what I could do. This is a project I was planning on doing in the future, and wanted to know if it was even possible first.

    Hopes and Dreams to put into it:

    -320 GB Hard Drive (2.5-inch 9.5mm, of coarse)
    -2 or 4 GB RAM
    -New Intel processor onto logic board
    -DVD Super drive
    -New Li-Ion Battery
    -Faster USB ports

    Basically I want to build a new computer inside the shell of an old iBook Clamshell, because that would just be awesome. Any help / suggestions would be great, thanks.
