Can Macbook internal parts be custom fit into an empty 12" Powerbook shell?

I have a love-hate relationship with my new Macbook. It's very fast and I now have Tiger, etc., but the size, shape and keyboard are awful for me.
As an older woman who hunts and pecks, the Powerbook keyboard was just the right size and "feel" for my hands. Also, I could clearly see the black letters.
The Macbook keys are spaced too far apart for my fingers, they feel funny, and I can't read the light gray against white lettering.
If I can't get someone to squeeze this into my beloved 12" Powerbook, can I at least switch the key plates that you press on between the two? Maybe there are key letter stickers with large letters on them that I can get...??
Thanks ....

Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to do what you want to do. The PowerBook and MacBook have virtually no common components between them. Your best bet may be simply to get a USB keyboard. Another option may be to switch to a black MacBook... the keys are white lettering on black keys... very easy to read. While it would be an unusual request, I don't see any technical reason why Apple wouldn't be able to fit your white MacBook with a black keyboard. Perhaps if you explain your situation to them, they can work something out.

  • Can a pcie-1x sound card fit into the third pcie-8x slot of P7N Platinium ?

    can a pcie-x1 sound card fit into the third pcie-x8 slot of P7N Platinium (indicated by the green arrow in the pic below) ?
    what is the intended usage or practical usage for that 3rd slot?
    Also, kindly enquire if 3 ways SLI really feasible and any driver is released and tested to support it?
    My rig specification are as follow: 1)msi p7n sli platinium, 2)intel e8400 stock cooler, 3) 2x 2GB Crucial Ballistix  DDR2 800, 4)2x msi 8800gt oc 512mb  5) acbel M8 750 6) Samsung 160gb hdd 7) Asus DRW.
    thank you. i do like this motherboard, very nice layout and the circu-pipe in particular. lack of sata ports has been compensated by purchasing a 4 sata ports controller card. if the third pcie x8 is a pcie x1 slot, that will be even better.

    Yes you can
    great to hear that. like that, i can consider buying the Asustek Xonar D2X Audio Card PCI-E as the green indicated pcie x8 is my only unoccupied slot after using 2  gfxs (2 slots) and 1 sata controller pci card.
    thank for your prompt reply.

  • Can an image resize automatically to fit into a template?

    Many (weaker) programs allow you to drag an image into a template and have it resize to fit into a specific area.  Can this be done in CS6?  For instance .... if you designed a 4x6 Christmas card template and it had a (place holder?) for a 2x2 photograph, and you dragged an image into this 2x2 area, can it resize automatically to "fill" just that 2x2 area?  This would result in some cropping of just the longest dimension, if the image inserted wasn't a square.

    It can be done with Photoshop Scripting.   Note when the inage has a diffenebt aspect ratio or different shape then the template the images is sized to fit and fill the template open and any excess is masked off.
    I have a free download you can use.  In Photoshop version  CS2 through CS5 Below CS2 some required features are missing and there are bugs in CS6 scripting.
    Photo Collage Toolkit 
    Photoshop scripting is powerful and I believe this package demonstrates this. The package includes four simple rules to follow when making Photo Collage Template PSD files so they will be compatible with my Photoshop scripts.
    There are ten scripts in this package they provide the following functions:
    TestCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to test a Photo Collage Template while you are making it with Photoshop.
    CollageTemplateBuilder.jsx - Can build Templates compatible with this toolkit's scripts.
    LayerToAlphaChan.jsx - Used to convert a Prototype Image Layer stack into a template document.
    InteractivePopulateCollage.jsx - Used to interactively populate Any Photo Collage template. Offers most user control inserting pictures and text.
    ReplaceCollageImage.jsx - use to replace a populated collage image Smart Object layer with an other image correctly resized and positioned.
    ChangeTextSize.jsx - This script can be used to change Image stamps text size when the size used by the populating did not work well.
    PopulateCollageTemplate.jsx - Used to Automatically populate a Photo Collage template and leave the populated copy open in Photoshop.
    BatchOneImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Collage templates that only have one image inserted. The Collage or Image may be stamped with text.
    BatchMultiImageCollage.jsx - Used to Automatically Batch Populate Any Photo Collage template with images in a source image folder. Easier to use than the interactive script. Saved collages can be tweaked.
    PasteImageRoll.jsx - Paste Images into a document to be print on roll paper.

  • Can a G3 iBook airport card fit into my G4 17" iMac?

    Just wondering if anyone know whether my old iBook airport card will fit into the G4 17" iMac.

    Your iBook G3 uses the original 802.11b AirPort card.

  • How can I move part of one photo into another photo?

    In older versions of Photoshop you could see two or more frames in the work area and cut an paste parts of one photo into another photo by using the "move" tool after the area to be moved was selected. I am having trouble discerning how to achieve this action in CC. Could someone in the forum with this experience give me some steps to take to complete this process? Thanks.

    Thanks Trevor!

  • Can my macbook 4, 1 handle a 2tb hard drive if it fits into the hard drive bay?

    Can my macbook 4, 1 handle a 2tb hard drive if it fits into the hard drive bay?
    Does the hard drive brand matter as lon as the har drive fits in the slot?
    I want to put a 2tb hard drive in my macbook 4, 1 but I am not sure if the hard drive will work.
    Can my computer handle that big of a hard drive?

    "If it fits" will be the limiting factor. The largest capacity that I know of that will fit is 1.5 TB.
    OWC sold this 1 TB 12.5 mm WD hard disk a while ago that allegedly fit your MacBook4,1 so it stands to reason you won't be limited to a 9.5 mm dimension. The only 2 TB drives that I know of are 15 mm thick and will definitely not fit your MacBook. If and when you can find a 2 TB HDD in the required form factor it will work.

None of my headphone jacks can fit into the iphone without it being loose and falling out. Is there anywhere or way I can get this resovled ?

    Sure, get the headphone jack replaced. Or do an Out-of-Warranty replacement at your nearest Apple Store for $199 USD.

  • Can MacBook Pro Ram fit in a white 13" MacBook?

    Hello there,
    I have a Macbook Pro 15" (mid-2010) and my wife has a white Macbook 13" (mid to late 2008).  I'm upgrading my 4GB ram to 8GB.  Does anyone know if my ram can fit into my wifes MacBook?

    No, your Mac book Pro uses 204pin 1066mhz PC3-8500 RAM

  • Will a Macbook Pro HD fit into my Macbook?

    I have a friend that is exchanging his internal HD from his Macbook Pro. He offered me an excelent deal on his old 250Gb HD. Will it fit into my Macbook?
    Thanks for your inputs!

    The only reason it would not fit would be physical size of the drive. Go to one of the online stores, look for a hard drive of the same capacity for both the MacBook and the Pro. If they are the same then it should fit.
    Once you are ready to install the drive back up your entire existing drive with time machine. Install the new drive (its easy I replaced mine with a 250 gb) the instructions are on the internet. Then boot from your OSX disk. Repartition the new drive then restore your drive from the time machine backup and reboot. When I did this the only thing that happened when I rebooted is that OSX wanted me to reregister. Otherwise everything looked and worked the same.

  • Copy music/books from a sansa mp3 to another mp3, as well as onto my MacBook Pro if it fits into the equation. Many thanks.

    i have music/books on a sansa mp3. I'd like to copy it to another mp3, as well as onto my MacBook Pro if it fits into the equation. Many thanks.

    What happens when you connect your MP3 player to your Mac? Does it show up in finder as an external drive?
    If it does you can copy those MP3 file to the Mac hard drive or to another MP3 player connected to the other USB port if it shows up in finder as another external drive.

  • How can I display more graph data than will fit into memory?

    I'd like to graph more data than will fit into my computer's memory on a LabVIEW graph or some other LabVIEW control. In the past I've hacked this with the 2D Picture Control. LabVIEW would read through the huge file one chunk of manageable memory at a time and fill in the appropriate pixels in the 2D Picture Control as it read through the file.
    Is there a better way?

    Looks like mikeporter has done most of the heavy lifting for you in his excellent article.
    If the data will not fit in memory then you have little choice other than reading chunks at a time from file. I would probably so something like:
    Decide how much you want to work with at a time (say 1 MSamples). If your selected 'dataset' zoom level is 'all data' then you will have to read in all the file piecewise, decimate the data, and build up your 1MSamples array. You can then use the LabVIEW graph to zoom in and out and scroll that set of samples. This gives you some limited 'live' functionality on the decimated dataset, and means you don't have to read from the file every time you scroll or zoom.
    Then if you want to examine part of the data more closely, you need to change the 'dataset' zoom level to 'just these 100Msamples' (say). Re-read just that section of the file, decimate as needed, and display. As your 'dataset' of interest becomes smaller you will need to decimate less until you can just read sample for sample.
    These two levels of 'zoom' - a macro 'dataset' selected from the overall data, and the native graph zoom and scroll, should give a balance of usability without having to constantly read from file as you move around small sections of the data.
    Sorry I don't know of any existing code (though I'm sure someone has done it before!) - if you do implement something like this then maybe you could share

  • HT201678 How can the safe recommended operating temperature be only up to 95F when it is designed to fit into a pocket next to the body and the body can be at 98.6F or higher?

    How can the safe recommended operating temperature be only up to 95F when it is designed to fit into a pocket next to the body and the body can be at 98.6F or higher?

    98.6F is the approximate average internal temperature of the human body. It is not the external temperature. Do not insert your phone into any bodily orifice or carry it for long periods of time in your armpit and you'll be fine.

  • Can I install a 1TB Hard Drive into a late 2007 17" MacBook Pro?

    Can I install a 1TB Hard Drive into a late 2007 17" MacBook Pro currently running a 160 GB Hard Drive?

    It depends upon exactly what you want to do with your Mac.  My old Late 2007 17" MacBook Pro only has 4GB RAM and it works fine.  It is a little slow if I am doing anything involving heavy computing (rendering video, compiling programs, etc.) but it works just fine.  In most cases, the increased RAM will help performance, but the cost can be fairly high with an older machine like you have.
