Intel iMac 20'' to 27'' housing upgrade?
I have a 20'' intel imac 2008 model, reliable machine used as my media center in the bedroom .
Would it be possible to move the whole inside setup to a 27 or 24 housing and screen ?
I am pleased with the performance of current machine ... just find that the 27'' imac are way overpriced.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
The 2008 Imac is actually not that old (obviously is the all aluminium case) and has Sata drive and PCI-E bus. Model is probably MB324LL/A
I am not looking to buy anything except the chassis and the screen .
I was just thinking of buying a new housing and a the correspondent screen and move the complete guts to the bigger size housing
logic board, video card, hdd, dvd, simms and all .
It actually is about if the guts will fit the bigger size chassis with some adjustements phisical adjustments for holders of different components.
I know PC hardware very well, but not imac hardware.... but have a good understanding of computer hardware in general .
I do no see why a bigger size screen would not be driven by the same video card as long as the connector is the same.
Thanks for the insight though.
I know that it sounds a bit convoluted, but as a media center it's performance it's just fine.. but a bigger screen would be great.
Is this a good question?
