I can't afford a complete system, so I have decided to build a clamshell IBook from parts. What is the complete liost of parts I need? Also wehre can I buy them? I have a budget limit of $130 I want Tangerine, Lime, or Blueberry. Can anyone help me?

I don't think what you are looking to do is possible

I tried to look on ebay, but they all get pushed up to prices much higher than $130. I see parts availible all the time like mobo's and memory, screens and cases, so it should be possible to build one from the seperate parts.

while its possible to build it from parts, you probably wont save any money. the screens themself are at least $100, and looking on eBay, i couldnt find one less than $130. and then youd need a case, keyboard, video card, laptop HD, sound card, motherboard, etc..
I think youd be best holding on to the $130 and saving up a few hundred more and getting a complete one.
