I received all my parts today and put them all together - a 120GB hard drive, 512MB stick of PC133 RAM, Apple Airport card and last but not least an MCE Tech superdrive.

Read up all about it on my blog here and let me know what you think!

I had my iBook for plans like that but the logicboard died on me. Heres what could of been done to mine.

Before:
512MB PC133 chip
Airport
700MHz CPU
24x CD-ROM

After:
faster fan that can push 200CFMs
Pioneer DVR-K06 8X Slim Slot Load DVD-RW Dual Layer
160GB hard drive with a 16MB cashe

It looks good, feels a lot faster with the memory maxed out huh?

Yeah, I can't believe the speed difference. Even more is the speed difference between this thing and my clamshell @ 400MHz with 288MB of RAM - it's practically night and day!
