    MacTester57's iMac G5 17" (A1058 Model)

    I thought about something nearly the same, using old netbooks with HDMI or DVI (for the iMac displays), but working netbooks are over 80€ on ebay and are old ( ~ 2008- 2010 ) and slow. You can find ITX motherboards or NUC PC in the range of 130€ with actual hardware. You can do that, with you...

    iMac G5 17" A1144 Display Connector

    Sorry, i did a mistake in my first try, so DON`T use it . Pin 26 is VCC 3v3 @ isight 17" and 12V @ imac 20" so it is not EDID-CLK, EDID-CLK is pin 24 !! You can damage the EEPROM of the Display.
