    Can anyone tell me, if I upgrade my macbook pro hard drive, can I put the original one in an old titanium powerbook g4? That would make my nice old powerbook much more usable!

    I'm certainly not a drives expert, but as I understand it the PowerBook has an ATA drive interface, while all the new MacBooks and MBPs are SATA. I'm pretty sure you can't use your MBP drive in your PowerBook.

    You might want to think about getting an external bus powered firewire enclosure, though. I've put an old drive in one of those, and it works really well.
