Is it possible to upgrade iBook/PowerBook hard drives and do you need to have any special kind of laptop hard drives to upgrade cause if I buy an iBook (see signature) I want to upgrade to at least an 80GB hard drive. I know you have to install the OS to the new Hard drive so all you'd need is a restore disk or whatever comes with the iBook/PowerBook to reinstall it right? Elaborate if someone could...

you can upgrade them however it's a major task to do so and i'm pretty sure it voids any warranty
the biggest drive for either the ibook or powerbook is currently 80GB
i'd suggest upgrading to the biggest one thru apple their prices aren't too bad for HD
if you still need additonal storage, get a FW external HD
