New guts bring new processors, DDR4, USB3 to old ThinkPads

We often see people funneling their passion into keeping beloved devices in operation long past their manufacturerâ??s intent. These replacement Thinkpad motherboards [Chinese] bring old (yet beloved) Thinkpads a much desired processor upgrade. This is the work of the user [HOPE] on the enthusiast forum 51nb. The hack exemplifies what happens when that passion for legendary gear hits deep electrical expertise and available manufacturing. This isnâ??t your regular laptop refurbishment, [HOPE] is building something new.

This is incredible. I wish someone could do this with an iBook G4 or a 12.1″ PowerBook.
