Well with all the new updates to Apples moble line I thought it may be time to get a G4 processor into my household. After looking at the iBook line (PowerBook is out of my pricerange) and thinking its not really worth upgrading my machine yet (top speeds on iBooks arent fast enough to warrant an update) i decided to pimp out this iBook and make it a little nicer to use. Just added 512MB of PC100 RAM from Crucial, an internal superdrive from MCE Technologies (no real reason for the superdrive except for wow factor) and a 60GB Hitachi Travelstar HDD (7200RPM, 8MB Cache). If your looking to squeek some extra life out of your G3 iBook definatly swap the HDD to the Hitachi Travelstar drive because it makes for some noticeable improvements. Cost a little under $1000 to get parts and installed everything myself. This thing seriously feels like a new machine and its actually built to order with the parts i want in it! Go me!
