Unfortunately yesterday I cracked the screen of my intel iMac - *#@%&!.

I looked into getting a replacement from Apple or from another supplier and a brand new screen will cost you upwards of $900. I obviously don't want to pay that much.

I can probably get an old iMac in Craigslist and just replace the screen. The older the iMac the cheaper I can get it. I have the manuals and the knowledge to replace it but don't know if any 20" screen would work.

For example - would a 20" screen from a G5 or G4 iMac work on my intel iMac?

I've been looking around the forums but can't find any clear answers. If anyone has any information about this it would be really appreciated.


Intel Imac (white), Mac OS X (10.5.6), 2 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, 256 VRAM
