*Warning if you are sensitive or have severe ibook envy you may wish to look away!


So I was trapped in my house during a three day ice storm that took out my internet access, killed my power intermittently, and brought company over to get warmed up. Oh, and after the second day my house guest and I locked on the defunct ibook sitting on the back of my desk....

Need any spare parts?

The iBook referenced in this photograph...
...this photograph, right here...is now a desktop, due to the screen coming apart.


Not that I'm hinting or anything.


Really. I'm not.


Really.

Sorry it took so long, but the answer (finally) is yes:



How it's set up now...



...with the Apple monitor my beautiful and brilliant wife bought for $25 at a flea market.



The chasm opens...



...into a great gaping barbaric yawp.



iBook uninhibited? No, simply unhinged.

Wow, that's great that it still works. A conversation piece too!

Yes, it works for some definition of works--it's propped up against that 1705 because the display no longer works. It does make a great desktop now, though.
