    The size will make no difference on how it runs. Im not sure if 120 is the biggest it supports, but if it is in fact the largest, than I say go with a 120GB drive.

    Well, there may have been something wrong with the drive than, or possibly a bad installation. The size of the drive would not effect performance. Not in any cases I can recall anyway.

    True,it was a 4200rpm 120GB drive though so a bit laggy compared to the 80GB 5400rpm in my iBook now.
