    I'd like to upgrade my PB G4 550's HD from 20GB to 60GB. I'm a little lost as to which drives will work in my system. I've heard good things about Toshiba's 60GB with the Fluid Dynamic Bearing, but someone told me that those won't work in the PB casing. Does anyone know where I can find information on which drives will fit?

    It will probably work, but it's not worth it to attempt it yourself. Take it to a service center.

    you'er not trying to do this yourslef are you?

    if you're not really sure of what you're doing, and what drives will fit, then just take it to the store and get them to do it. you could even try asking the store what drives will fit them looking around for the best price and seeing if they will put in a drive that you supply.
