It's been a while since I worked on a PowerBook. At one point I did do a swap or two of the logic boards around with the G4 models. If I remember correctly you can use the interchange any of the three boards within the series you have here without any issues. You can't use the HighRes board on your unit as the display is different.

With that said, unless your logic board is having problems I would leave things alone. You more likely need to replace the PRAM battery (by the optical drive).

Besides, the PowerPC models while still quite nice, can't run any of the newer programs and do run the risk of spyware, trojans and viruses as the OS & the antivirus apps have not been updated fully to combat these more modern online risks.
