New HD in 800-17TFT-g4-Imac >how big???
Iīd like to swop the old 80GB harddisk of my800mhz g4-flatpanel imac ( OS 10.3.8) but I donīt know how big the new one may be. Iīm thinking of a Hitachi 250GB one.
Apple hotline would not give a secure answer --or could not..I donīt know.
Maybe one of you has already done such a change and can give a hint.

i'm not quite sure i understand your question...
the HD can be as big as you want it to be in terms of GB... however you need to make sure that you buy a 3.5" HD not a 2.5" (notebook) one.
number of switchers: 3
12" ibook G3 900Mhz | 640MB RAM | Combo Drive | AirPort | 60GB | 10.4.0
1GB ipod shuffle

I think you're thinking of the 120GB limit on some Macs, check your system profiler for the ATA bus speed. if it is a 133 then you can use bigger than 128GB
Well gentlemen, a great deal of money has been invested in this project...
...and we can't allow it to fail.

yes, I know about the difference between 2,5 and 3,5...
itīs the gb-size what bothers me. iīve heard of the limit of 128gb.
my imac has a busspeed of 100 MHz. the hd should be an ata100.
last year i had found an internet page on that problem with bigger hd and how to put them inside the mac. but i lost that adress.
