clamshell4life in ibookmod

I'm new here

Hey guys, I came across this site whilst searching the web for modding iBook Clamshells. I collect old Macs (PPC G4 or older) and I think personally that the clamshell is the best looking Apple Laptop ever! Anyways, I am getting 2 in the mail next week, and was wondering if anyone could tell me how to mod them to make them light up/glow. That would be a sweet starter mod. anyways, Thanks!

I don't know enough about EE to tell you exactly how you'll make things glow, but I imagine you could pull the 5v from the USB port to power some LEDs you could then mount in the case. I'd look online for info on adding LEDs to laptops to see what your best power sources are on the motherboard.

Maybe the power from the modem, too, since you probably won't actually use that...

thanks

Thanks for the reply. Good idea with he USB power.
