    Replacing the drive on an iBook is a nasty little job. about 2 hours for the mechanically adept.

    It takes a 2.5", 9.5mm high IDE hard drive, makers are Seagate, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Toshiba and Western Digital. I like the Seagate Momentus series with the 5 year warranty. Available in 4200, 5400 and 7200 RPM, sizes 40 Gb to 100 Gb.
