I've been using a 12" iBook G4 PPC since I bought it secondhand three years ago, and I really loved working on it (I updated it into Leopard and mainly used it for design work with CS3 and downloading videos, understandably slow but it never lets me down... also, the thing is cute) until the HD died earlier this year (it just died on me randomly). I bought a 2008 MBP to replace it and I'm currently using it as my main laptop. Finally, I found a store which can repair my iBook and replace the HD. I want to have it repaired so we can use it as an emergency laptop. Unfortunately it would cost me about $150. I can follow the iFixit instructions but I am not as confident about my tinkering skills as I was before. Also, I think the store's available HD replacement is too expensive. So I'd like to ask if 1) Is it wise to budget/save up for this repair? 2) My local store offers a PATA drive (Samsung 120GB IDE/PATA 5400rpm, 8MB Mobile Hard Disk Drive) at a much affordable price, would it be compatible? Thank you in advance!
