    Hey I am wondering what was the stock hard drive speed of my PowerBook G4 12" (specs in signature). I am asking for the speed of the 80 GB ATA/100 HDD this shipped with.

    The stock hard drive in my 15 was 4200rpm. I upgraded to a 120gb 5400rpm.

    So this 80 GB HDD (the original) is 4200 RPM? That's very slow. I remember I removed it and replaced it with the 250 GB 5400 RPM. Not only was it slow, it was VERY VERY HOT.

    The original 80GB hard drive was 5400RPM. I custom ordered mine specifically for that option.
