The second picture is my latest All-In-One Sandy Bridge Hackinosh using an ECX board to run Mac OS Lion. This is very much native and did not require any alteration to the neck or lcd. The computer, DVD burner, SSD (running lion) and onboard Compact Flash (running Windows 8 Developer Preview) are all internal. This was a tremendous amount of fun and will make a great all-in-one computer.
Obviously both these methods are viable and both have their advantages. From the outside, they are indistinguishable from each other or a native iMac G4. Of course, which ever method you use for the LCD is independent of what you connect it to.

While I now have a functional upgraded replica, I still like the idea of adding additional functionality to the iMac G4 with a touch screen. There are a couple options that are now available. Some capacitive screens have become much more reasonably priced. Although they were originally designed as single touch, new software may be able to make them function with gestures and at multitouch. Another possibility is optical or IR touch. Although the available optionals do not come in 20" 16:10, they possibly can be tweaked.
The downside is that the 20" capacitive screen will add too much weight and the optical touch will require extra room between the LCD and the bezel. One thing that may make this possible is to use LED backlighting which would be much thinner. A fellow modder JP7 has done a fe amazing mods of apple cinema displays using LED backlights.
In terms of the base, I have no use for either a desktop monitor or an all-in-one. But, a larger screen for a notebook computer has always been something I have considered for the iMac G4. Using either wired technology (A thunderbolt dock? - If they eventually come in at a reasonable price) or wireless technology (Wireless DVI and USB adapter?) is something I can definitely see being useful.

After I use my current G4 and G5 spare parts, I will probably move on from this. And I still have a Cube which has been sitting waiting to be modded.
Good luck to you. I hope that you will complete your tasks soon.ReplyDelete
