    Good luck with it. What kind of 'book do you have, model speed.
    I would like to now how much faster it is with that new HD.

    15 al pbook......i just upgraded to 1.5 gb from 512.....im running off my external now which is pretty zippy.....syst prefs icon loads on clikc (i think the drive speed is 7200rpm though) and before on the internal it was like 2bounces and a half....i think the new internal drive is a 5400....so it should be fairly faster then what it is now

    I've heard that the difference between 4200 and 5400 is MUCH more noticeable than 5400 to 7200, so nice job.

    My girlfriend's PowerBook from the latest generation (5400 RPM hd) loads things noticeably faster than my iBook.
