Hey Welcome to Macmod, Well first off which iBook, you said extereme card so I am assuming G4, at any rate people have done many intresting mods with iBooks, ranging from digital Picture frames to sound-making pads. I would start by looking through the mods MacMod modders have done and then possibly use your own unique talents to creat a mod all of your own! (do I sound like a kindergarten teacher, sry.) Anyway if you want some ideas tell us what you can do.
Hmm ato removes links now... you can find it under "Mod Guides/External mods/iBook Mods"
check ebay for a new mobo for the ibook. If the logic board is shot then that's about your only option. The display uses a special controller so you couldn't just mod it up as a VGA monitor or use it on another computer. If it comes down to it, it might even be better to sell that display on ebay as parts. :ermm:
Sell the parts. They are worth alot more than the computer anyway. Use the money to buy a new one. How did you iBook die? If it is a G4, it seems alittle young. Maybe these books are experiencing the same issues as the prev. G3 iBook? Anyway, go to some Mac parts places to see how to break up yours for sale. -maestro
