    Nope. PowerBook G4 has to have an Ultra ATA hard drive.

    EDIT: This one will work...

    Nope, that hard drive has a SATA connector, your PowerBook uses ATA.

    It's also called IDE. There's a 160 gb single platter notebook IDE drive that's supposed to be almost as fast as a 7200. Can't remember who made it, though. Google should tell you.
