I have a TiBook (867MHz) with a broken screen and a badly damaged enclosure. I would like to put the internal components into a new enclosure. I'm open to any suggestions but my ideas were either a Mac SE (Or another similar mac) or Cube enclosure but the logicboard wouldn'y fit in a Cube. It would fit in a Mac SE if it was mounted vertically. Is there anyway I can do this and is there a suitible LCD for mounting inside the SE? I was partially inspired by this ( http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/anagotendon/6006) I would appreciate any advice.

I dug a bit further on the site and ended up with the nice English directions http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/anagotendon/6007 . The display they use is a great and all of the mounting instructions are included. What will be tricky is if you want to use the exisitng I/O's on the back. What you can do is get USB/FW/Sound/Power/Video/Whatever I missed extension cables and route them from the inside to the back of the case so you have those ports on the back.
Thanks for your advice. The mounting instructions don't really apply for me because im not using a mac mini. How could I mount the internal parts of a TiBook in a Mac SE enclosure? And is there anywhere you know where I could buy a Mac SE (Replica or real) enclosure only. I don't really want to take out the insides of a working Mac SE. I can't find anywhere to buy that Camos LCD or even an English site about it and the price on one of those websites seems ridiculous: €349!
You might try e-bay, I just did a search and found several SE's as low as $1.00 Us. Its the shipping thats going to hurt...

Thanks. I found this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...e=WDVW&rd=1). The seller also says they have the rear case for $3 so the total price including shipping would be $13 B) . This si a lot less than the other SE's and I don't have to take apart a working Mac SE.

def. There should be enough space inside the SE to where you wouldnt' have any problems. I am not sure that this exact project has been done so you are going to have to tackle it on your own. You might have a look at the mod guides for the powerbooks though to get an idea. Keep us posted.

I would like to be able to turn the computer on easily. The Mac Mini SE on this site http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/anagotendon/6006) uses a shutter release which is good except a hole has to be drilled in the case which I don't want to do. Will a Powerbook start up from a keyboard with an on button and which ones have this? I would appreciate any alternative ways to turn the computer on.
