you would need a PowerPC logic board 1.25Ghz-1.5Ghz, Intel boards don't work.

Why do you want an upgrade ?

is the old board dead or is it to slow - or do you want to use a newer OS ?

the main problem (in my opinion) is the fact that the g4 has different connectors - so the case layout will not fit the board layout.

surely there are people out there with funny ideas and a dremel..

but that wont make it better.

some do overclock the mini 1,25 to 1,42 ghz - others sell the g4 and buy an intel based mini (that would be the best, easiest way.

my opinion is a little bit different - but thats more a philosophic thing.

what makes a mac a real mac ?

some mac users are talking about logic board changes - as they where spare parts (like brake pads on someone's car) - that would be right when you go the "design is everything" way.

on the technical side is the logic board of an computer - everything - it simply is the computer (see it that way - the mini could operate without his (nice) case - but the case without the logicboard is only a case (still nice - but no longer a computer).

surely - you can put almost every mini itx board in that case - some of them will (depending on the chipset) be able to run snow leopard, most people wouldn't notice the difference (normally only at startup - there would be no chime and a boot manager will be seen) - but is that a mac ??

some would say yes and others would definatly say no!

let's go back to the brakes of a car - is a bmw no bmw only because i bought my brakepads from a different vendor, a different brand that sometimes could be better than the original ??

would that car be no longer a bmw ??
