Yes, we did a 24' 2008 this last week and I'm working on the guide now.

You'll need to get the specific number off the back of the display.

Then look it up with this company:

Here's the power supply I used:

So far I have 52 photos. Have to do some case mods. I put the video connectors out ports at the RAM door. Used the existing power on button, drilled indicator holes and mounted the control plate to the left on the bottom panel.

The 27" may be deeper and not require mods to the center. An interesting project and very cool monitor. Still working on the iSight camera hook ups but the rest is up and running. Works great.

Here's a couple, by the time you get the parts in from China, I'll have the guide posted:
