View Full Version : G4 PB HDD in G3 iBook?

Jan 4, 2008, 06:23 PM
well i bought a 2.5 60gb apple oem ata6? drive from an powerbook G4 and was wondering if it would work in my g3 ibooK? i was wanting at least a 5400 rpm drive but i didn't read the action thoroughly and unfortunately it is a 4200 rpm drive. do they make faster 7200 drives that would work in g3 ibook? if they do then i need to buy a firewire 2.5" enclosure then.


oh yeah i was also wondering if the ati mobility video card is also upgradable? 16mb sucks :p

The drive will work, but you cannot upgrade the video card.

thanks for your help. now i just need to get an 2.5" external enclosure so i can transfer the data on this drive to my 60gb one.

yeah i was affraid that the video couldn't be upgraded so i'm just using aticcelerator to OC it.
