I recently started a project of converting a Powerbook to a media center that would stay attached to my entertainment center (will use CenterStage as interface).
So my question is, what are the bare bones essential parts of the Powerbook that I would need to have a rumming system? I'm scrounging parts and buying from Ebay.
Currently I have from a 12" Powerbook:
* 1.33ghz logic board DVI
* DC to DC board
* Inner Frame (with fan)
* Heat Sink
Now the obvious parts needed would be ram, hard drive, and DC In Board. Don't need the battery and the modem nore the speakers. Don't need a display but a touch screen would be nice.;)
Probably should put in a superdrive.But what can I exclude and still have a working system?
Any and all help/info is appreciated!
