View Full Version : Installing a new HDD in an iBook

Nov 17, 2005, 01:36 PM
Hey all,

I've sold my PowerBook G4 1.67 GHz (15" Rev C) to my manager and I'm thinking I might still want a notebook, I'm considering a 12" iBook but I'd like to replace the HDD with a 7200 RPM 100 GB 1 if I buy it, I can't find any docs on apple.com/support about changing the HDD in an iBook, anyone got any links? Or info they would like to share about doing this?

Check out the PBfixit guide.
pick your model and roll (http://www.pbfixit.com/Guide/)

Good luck, and remember it will kill any warranty that's on it! :eek:

Excellent, thanks for that. I'm not too worried about the warranty I'd just be building it is a muck around box and I work with hardware all the time so it's just a case of having a guide I've got the clues. :)

I upgraded my 12" iBook as well. You can see what I did in that thread.
