Picking the brain of any Apple Certified Technicians out there.
I've been upgrading a 1.33Ghz AL with parts from a badly abused 1.5Ghz model (nabbed the bigger hard disk and DVD burner). The donor is a newer "2005" Radeon 9700 model, not the faster version of the 1.33's generation, so it differs in a few places. (Has a different motherboard, different keyboard, etc.)
My question: The PRAM battery pack in those machines is taped to the top of the optical drive.
(With tape that *really* doesn't want to let go.) The physical form factor of both the battery itself and the circuit board it's nested in is totally different, but the voltages are the same, as is the motherboard connector. So... are the two compatible?
Just curious, really. I went ahead and unstuck the tape from the drives when I swapped them, but I'm wondering if I could of saved the agony of prying off something so fragile. :^b
