Nice looking.  But who would do this unless something was wrong with their screen?

I turned a perfectly good iMac DV special edition into a Mactendo (i.e. mac inside a NES case) I worked until I tore it apart to reuse the laptop hdd elsewhere. I dumped too much money into that to only use it for a week or so (various adapters and a 160w pico psu)

Yea, but a Powerbook is portable.  With this you have to have a monitor too.  That's the only reason I question it.

the original had a dead monitor, so he figured he would do this instead of throw the whole thing away
