Hi,

I've just got my first mac. A very cheap 1ghz 12" iBook with a cracked screen.
I used to be a pc engineer so replacing it isn't a problem. However, I am unsure which screens will be compatible. Will any 12" ibook screen work, even if it is from a G3?

Cheers,

No. You will have to get the LCD designed for the G4. The connections are very similar, yet different enough to not work.

I wonder if it works the other way round? Were the connectors the same?
