iBook G3 Clamshell ModiBook G3 Clamshell Modification Project

This is the first mobile device we have ever made - the iBook G3 i5 Mod. "iBook G3" refers to the design of this laptop; and "i5" refers to the logicboard installed inside.

We replaced the old G3 logicboard of the iBook by one with Intel Core i5. Now there is no big different between it and the original iBook, in the outlook, except there is an iSight HD Camera above the screen.
