It looks like a clamshell ibook
You could make it into modern art?

Yeah its the clam shell one, and i think its 450mHz CPU, and it has 350 or so mb of ram.

Take the LCD display, find an adapter for it (unless this 100% Apple proprietary you should be able to find one... you can for any other laptop monitor) and either use it as a secondary display or mod it into the side of a case of another computer and have it display statistics/virtualizations. It'd be a decent amount of work, but it seems to me it would be a shame to waste a perfectly good screen.

Part it out (hardrive, ram, motherboard w/ cpu, and shell itself) if you have no use that is. I like that idea with the screen into the side of the case though. If you just wanna get rid of it, you could sendd me the ram.
