    Hi All!

    Can you put a 80G or 100G HD in a (early 2004) iBook G4 1.07? The biggest one available then was a 60G. This company called MCE say they can put 80 & 100G HD into G4 iBooks. More info here

    Would it be worth it, or am I asking to much from the iB?

    Thanks in advance!

    Theres no problem putting a larger drive in the iBook, the computer should handle the 100gb fine. MCE seems like your best bet that way you don't lose your warranty.

    I upgrade my old iBook w/ a 7200 rpm 60gb drive. You can put any size drive in there as long as it is 2.5" laptop drive. Search this topic there was a huge thread about it before.

    Yep, I originally ordered my iBook with the standard 30GB drive as I thought I'll just buy a big 2.5" HD later on and change it myself.

    But now I've already made up my mind that I'll get a PowerBook at some point so I'm not gonna do anything to this machine.

    And at the same time I'm pissed that I didn't take the 60GB drive option Apple offered, this 30GB is so small. I do have a 200GB External FireWire Seagate Barracuda but I'd like to have a bigger internal drive as well. :(

    From that web page it looks like they may only do the HD upgrade if you buy the Superdrive upgrade first. I looked on their HD upgrade page, but they seem to only offer HDs for Powerbooks there. Did you find somewhere where they'll upgrade just the HD in your iBook?
