iMac G4 flatscreen - 12/15/05 02:29 AM

I love my screen on my iMac G4. I'd rather be able to use it instead of going out and buying a new LCD monitor. Does anyone have an ideas as to hooking it up to a Mac mini? :woohoo:

Its a whole lot easier said than done I'm afraid.

You could just upgrade you iMac instead. They are still great computers.

true that. What if I wanted to keep my screen for a PowerMac G5?

If you buy a PMG5, I would at least go with the 20" ACD. A 23"r is comparable to dual 17'rs, which
is probably preferable. I know it is for me.

Check this thread to get an idea of what is involved in re-using a proprietary LCD panel:
