    OK, so I just upgraded my PowerBook's HDD to 120GB from 80GB. I've migrated all of my data and settings and still have a whopping 50GB of space left on this drive. Needless to say, it's nice to have a little bit of breathing room. :)

    PowerBook specs:
    - 1.5 GHz G4
    - 1.5 GB RAM (2GB soon, maybe)
    - 128 MB Radeon 9700 Mobility

    I'm planning to (finally) install a few games on this thing:
    - Quake 3
    - WarCraft III
    - Neverwinter Nights
    - nethack
    - Solitaire XL

    Am I missing something obvious or essential? What do you play on the road?

    I'm not a big MMO fan, nor do I always have a 'net connection handy, so WoW is out of the question.

    I havent put any games on the PB yet. But i will most likely put in WCIII and Doom3
    if i do any gaming its usually on the G5.
    I still have the 80GB HD and ive got about 29 gigs left :)
    ( mostly because i have a 250GB lacie drive, a 40GB lacie drive, and 238GB free on my G5 :) )

    My Powerbook sucks anus at playing games. I had MOH:AA, but I couldn't get more than 20 FPS on low settings... it was horrible.

    That's when I gave up gaming and went back to the PC world for a bit.

    Did you do it yourself? What did it cost?

    I have about 5GB free out of 80 on my PowerBook and wouldn't mind the breathing room of a larger drive either.

    No, I didn't. I took it to a local reseller (Apple-authorized for service) and had them do the job for me. Cost right at $300 USD, incl. labor and tax.

    I was really impressed ... I dropped off the laptop, shopped around a bit, and walked out with an upgraded laptop 30 minutes later. :) Anyone in or near Huntsville, AL should definitely check out Mac Resource.
