Macintosh Portable running OS X

This is my old Macintosh Portable that I converted to run Mac OSX, using the hardware from an old NB100 netbook I had sitting around.

I took plenty of photos along the way. If you're simply wondering 'why?' or maybe you want to know more about the main hardware, mounting the screen, optical mouse conversion and the remapping/rewiring of the keyboard (which ended up being fairly involved) then see the archive of my blog at
