If you call that a tad high, I want your wallet. At over $700 it is wayyy too steep. Especially since I have seen the same drive in a firewire enclosure for just over $500 (internal). I am also getting it to go inside my TiBook for under $400.
i keep hearing that these are powerbook hard drives. is there any reason why one couldn't use them in the 12.1 inch ibooks? i mean other than the extremely involved process of exchanging hard drive in the ibooks. is hte heat/power consumption ok for use?
the size sounds great, but the speed jump from 4200 to 5400 sounds really great.
There is a reason... the iBook cannot accept any drive over the 9mm thickness. The 60GB drives are 12mm. I know that it might not seem like much, but the iBook has more of a space crunch then the TiBook does.
nope, that makes perfect sense to me. i knew there was a reason somewhere.
i will be getting a very large external drive to host my cds anyway (my collection might be up to around 1000 now), but i was thinking about a faster internal drive. i'm still getting "used" to doing things on a laptop....
well as long as its better than what apple ships with them...my dad got a 500 mhz g4 pb with a 30 gig drive...I transfered all his files over and had everything all set, and then the drive crapped out. started clicking and refused to start from disk...then I had to go through the transfer process all over again
