• '05-'06 iMac Replacement Screen?

    From Nodoka Hanamura@80:774/81 to All on Sat Aug 15 11:41:56 2020
    Hey, first time posting to Retronet, but out of needing advice, I wanted to
    ask a simple question - on the 2005-2006 iMacs (I know, not that retro, but I assume someone here may have dabbled with them), on a scale of 'so easy the GEICO Caveman could do it' to 'toss it in the bin' is finding and installing
    a replacement display for a Intel Desktop iMac from that timeperiod? I plan
    on selling mine and using the funds to go towards a Optiplex or other cheap home server setup so I can finally have my laptop back. I've never done hardware repair but I tend to easily learn new things, so If it requires soldering components, as long as there's good documentation for it, I'm up
    for the task. However, price is another factor, if it's too expensive I'm not going to bother.
