Well, I made a thread about a week ago saying that I was going to sell my Powerbook and get either an eMac or iMac G5. Recently, I've had a change of heart and decided to keep my Powerbook, for a couple of different reasons. Most importantly, I figure I can get at least 2-3 more years out of my PB if I just upgrade the RAM to 1 GB and install a new Superdrive. I didn't think this was possible until I ran across MCE Technologies' website. They're selling 8x Dual-Layer Superdrive upgrades for most Apple computers, including my PB. Buying the RAM and the new Superdrive would come out to around $450, which is much cheaper than spending $1350 on a new Mac. A couple of concerns before I take the plunge though: 1) How reliable is MCE? Are these superdrives quality products, or do they tend to screw up after a while? Any conflicts with my Apple apps? 2) How hard is it to install the superdrive myself? I don't think it would be too big of a deal, and my Applecare warranty is up anyway, so I'm not worried about voiding it. 3) I'm assuming Crucial is the absolute best choice for RAM. If I'm wrong, please enlighten me.
