I have already taken my PB apart once since I got it, but I am hopefully going to dig into it pretty soon, replacing the thermal paste and upgrading the stock 60 GB hard drive. Does anyone know if the 12 inch powerbook uses only thermal pads? I have read that every other powerbook uses either only paste or a combination of pads and paste, but the 12 inch PB which uses only pads. Can anyone confirm this? Also, I know I should probably get pads, because the GPU has a very odd shape, where the four chips on the top of the main chip are noticeably taller that the main chip. Should I just go with pads for everything? Or buy a few pads and a tube of paste to use on the CPU? Thanks for any recommendations!
