    Hi all,

    I am interested in buying a hardrive for a Powerbook G4 12'' which i plan to buy. I need at least 250GB of space, speed and reliability.

    Thanks,
    Luke

    WD's Scorpio Blue. 500GB, 5400rpm but performance is same as 7200rpm drives.

    Remember a PowerBook isn't SATA.

    Oh, dang :eek:

    Hmm.. Is it IDE then? There are plenty of IDE HDs from WD as well. Caviar Blue is P-ATA, does that work?
