    How much HDD space is required for Tiger? I have a 15 giger in my iBook and really to put a bigger HDD in there, really means to just buy a new computer. I don't want to do that yet.

    The only real reason why I am even considering getting Tiger is because of how cheap it is with the Student Discount.

    How does buying a bigger hard drive mean buying a new computer :confused:

    Just buy a drive, they're dead cheap now.

    I guess my logic does warrent some explaination:

    1. Shrike was about 500

    2. Shrike's Airport cost about 70

    3. Extra Ram was about 120

    4. New Drive would be what 100 or so?

    In that sense I have spent the same amount as it would have been to buy a new Mac to begin with. There is then two more issues I have:

    1. I heard swapping HDD's in these is a pain.

    2. I had the problem with my RAM in that it helped fry my Mac's Logic Board (in addition to the recall). So I had to send it back to the company and they made me special RAM. Would that be the case with a HDD?

    Also thank you for that info, was it on Apple.com? I looked and couldn't find it. Course, I looked from when I was in the store, so perhaps that made a difference...
