Hey guys!

So, I have an old iBook G4 sitting in my closet. It needs a new hard drive (this one is VERY loud and won't book up the home screen) and I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of hard drive I need to get for it. People I know seem to say an Ultra ATA but is that all I need to know? Are there dimensions or specifications that I need to know to purchase for the iBook?

Another thought is that I was going to sell the iBook for $120, but someone offered to swap the very broken iBook for a 1st gen iPod Touch - 8GB. What are your thoughts on this swap? Should I spend $100 on a new hard drive and keep the iBook? A bit lost here! :confused:

Thanks guys!:)

Everything you need to know is there. I assumed it was a 12" but you can change to 14" if it is.
