    I would like to replace the HD of my PowerBook G4 12/1500 with something decent. Can anyone tell me if this HD will fit & function? What is the max I can find for my baby?

    I reckon that will fit.

    You are looking for a 9.5mm 2.5" IDE drive. The largest I have seen is the 250GB, should work just fine.

    I just replaced hd for my powerbook 12' yesterday. I got a WD 120G EIDE for less than $70 from bestbuy, which I think is a good bargin.

    The apple guy in Bestbuy told me basically anything is EIDE or Ultra ATA-100 will do on powerbook 12', doesn't necessarily need a "mac compatible" lable.

    And if you plan to do it yourself, like I did, check ifixit.com, there's a good picture guide.

    good luck.
