    The link you provided isn't working.

    Would this be it? Were all the question marks necessary?

    It looks good but I'm not sure about the height. Mac laptops need 9.5mm tall 2.5" hard drives. Do you already have a NewEgg account or can you look elsewhere online? Keep in mind it's a pain to open an iBook.

    Here's my suggestion if you're up to the adventure.

    These are the only other instances online that I could find of the hard drive wen related to iBooks.

    I looked up PowerBooks as well but the results were mostly reviews of the hard drive. I got this off of xlr8yourmac. I'd go to them for their drive compatibility lists.

    Happy hunting

    That's 10.16 mm tall.
