    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.

    thanks

    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.
