    I'm getting sick of waiting for the PB G5, my next purchase, and I'm thinking of doing a couple upgrades to my iBook G3 until it gets here. Namely, I was considering the 60gb 7200 rpm unit and overclocking it to 800 mhz. Just concentrating on the hard drive, has anyone done this to an iBook G3? (i don't feel like talking about overclocking right now... just hard drives). How much faster can this make my system? I already have 640mb of RAM...

    I'v upgraded my 30 GB HDD to a 80 GB HDD. I bought the drive from Other World Computing but I only saw 4200 and 5400 RPM drives. (I got the 4200 RPM) It seems much smoother now.
