Whick powerbook is this?

Is this the PBG4 you were talking about in the OS9 thread, Smiththers, or some other model PowerBook?

Some LCDs are easy to swap out (5300, Pismo), while with others you pretty much have to swap out the whole display assembly (Titanium, 12" PBG4).

More info from your end will result in better advice from our end.
