Totally jazzed about finding all this information I am going to start looking at building my own out of a Intuos 9x12 I have in my attic.
I have a series one G3 mac laptop also, the big black guy, and quite a few years ago I dropped it and seperated the screen from the body at the hinges.
Now I'll preface this by saying I have tons of experience replacing batteries in remote controls so I am naturally extremely qualified to be working with these complicated electronics.  Grin

My question to you guys is, theoretically speaking if the screen is not damaged outside of the severed connectors do you think it would be possible to obtain a card and power solution to use it, or is it even worth the headache?

If it isn't worth it, do you have any screen suggestions that pairs nicely with an Intuos 9x12?

Many thanks.

I suggest just getting a new screen

Dell 1503fp or something along the lines of that

You should also try to make sure it has an external power supply

mmmmm, I dunno.
It might be worth trying to resurrect the Mac and do something similar to Flos build.  It would be at least worth finding out how much it would cost in terms of new connectors n stuff,  nothing to lose but a bit of research time..

I'd be happy to do that research if I only knew where to begin. I am in fact that from which all newbs come from, I am patient zero, I'm fairly certain that there are little gnomes inside the bits of these machines and I'm afraid I don't speak gnome as of yet.

But I'll get the ole girl out and snap some pics of the damage.

The only way I'd really be interested in going through with it though would be to hook it to a different CPU, I couldnt imagine trying to deal with the old G3 these days even just to doodle.
