Hello, it's me again. Three years ago, I did a little mod work on my first iMac G4, and post it here:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...-reproduced-screen-and-android-system.181972/

After the first one, I did another two iMac G4 Mod:

zMac G4: iMac G4 MOD with 27' curved screen, upgrade from my first one.

iMac G4 Skull: iMac G4 MOD with Skull Canyon, a new one.


I’ll share some pic about zMac G4 in this post. I’ll keep this post simple. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.

Truly impressive...

Is it really only a Full HD panel?
Yes,sadly the panel is only FHD. For further updates, I left full DP line and HDMI line inside the neck so I can use 2K or 4K panel if I want.

Wow! I have 2 of these iMac G4s and must confess that this is the first time I truly envy of a non-original mod. GREAT job sinoneptune; and if you get bored / upgrade any of those, I'm interested in purchasing one! :)

Hello, your work is amazing ... I aspire to modify a 15-inch g4 to put a higher screen. Given your experience, you would say that the arm has the same characteristics in all three screen sizes 15, 17 and 20 inches... That is, could I upgrade the 15-inch screen to a larger one without the arm suffering from the weight difference?

What would you say is the limit? Could you recommend 27" CF591 to update my g4 15? ;)
