    The Hard Drive I may Buy.

    The iBook I am getting...(800mhz)

    and doubts or suggestions? I heard that hitachi travelstars are great laptop hd's so i figure i would go with that.

    anyways. if there are better deals out there that i should be aware of please let me know!

    Thanks a lot!

    not exactly completely on topic but i would just like to mention that the HD is one of the hardest parts to replace on a iBook in case you didn't already know that, ifixit.com has good guide.. I have basically the same comp. right now and i would just like to say that it would be nice to havve the 60 gig HD.

    If you're going to do it, you may as well go to 7200 RPM. Sure it costs more, but I think it's worth it. I've done this in my Albook and have noticed a big difference. It's like having a desktop, except not.
