I've come across 2 eMacs at work that each have a problem. A 15" G4 with a bad display and a 17" G4 with a bad logic baord. Can I use the logic board from the 15" in the 17" case to make 1 good machine? Has anyone tried swapping logic boards on an eMac? How hard is it?

15" G4 emac?

Hmmm, you're going to have to go back and double check what those machines are before we can help; as far as I know there isn't any such thing as a 15" emac.

dead_elvis is right...

the 15" must be something else, if the display is actually 15". What color is it? Does it have a slot-load or tray-load CD drive?

Disreguard the original post. I was givien wrong information. They are both regular 17" eMacs. I will just swap logic boards. Thanks anyway.
