    Hi,
    I would like to replace my Powerbook G4 400 mhz hardrive to 72000RpM 60gb. It currently have 384 ram which I think also needs upgrade. Have no idea. Just saw someone posted he replaces his hardrive with this one but his is much better powerbook. I'm new here so bear with me. Could anyone help?

    I cannot think of any reason why that would not work, I have fitted those drives in to 700MHz iBooks with massive increases of performance. Remember this upgrade will also use more battery!

    Relatively easy.

    You will need to buy a Torx 8 screwdriver. Make SURE you keep track of all the parts and how they came out, and in which order.

    You can install one or two 512 MB PC133 SODIMMs in the machine.

    Thanks
