It sounded quite... impressive.

I'm working on swapping in a different CD drive at the moment...

Same parts as any other computer - motherboard, RAM, HD, monitor, CD drive, power source.

The iBooks had a very compact logic board design.

Not like a new rMBP at all - these things are just a bunch of circuit boards glued together.

Just for the record, the iBook is up and running beautifully. It now has the SuperDrive out of a PBG4 instead of the original CD-ROM, and RAM has been increased from 512mb to 1gig.

That would be a wow. If that was a gas line explosion, I'd expect more broken windows in the foreground cars.
