    I recently acquired a 12" 1ghz PB with a 40ghd. I would like to upgrade this to 60 ghd. Is this simple enough for me to do and does anyone know what the cost would be and where to buy it. I am pretty savvy with electronics and repairs etc etc.
    Thanks

    Duff-Man says.....this article at xlr8yourmac will show you how much work is involved in swapping the drive in the 12" Powerbook. You need to buy a "superslim" 2.5" laptop drive - 9mm thick....Other World is one of the better vendors out there....oh yeah!
