You don't want 'really cheap' when it comes to PowerBook [G4] hard drives. Go with ones from IBM... OWC has the IBM 40GB [4200rpm and 5400rpm], 48GB [5400rpm] and 60GB [5400rpm] drives for $172, $260, $250, and $390 respectively.Originally posted by Ensign Paris
Anyone know where I can get a really cheap 60gb or 40gb Hard Disk for a Powerbook G4?
That has been already been pointed out, a few posts up... You really SHOULD read the thread before putting something like that up. Especially when the thread is short, like this one is.Originally posted by vjv
the ebay drive is actually 5400 rpm. not fast enough for demanding tasks(fcp etc.)
Assuming you were addressing me (not sure which 'bubba' you were talking to), I read your post, responding to Ensign. It has nothing to do with the other posts in the thread, and it seems you've answered his question. That was it for notebook drive discussion. Thanks.Originally posted by AlphaTech
Alright Bubba... IF you actually read my post, you would have seen that I was talking about IBM's TRAVELSTAR hard drive. It's actually being made by a different company I believe, and not an IBM factory.
The Travelstar drives are VERY reliable and Apple is now using them in ALL of their PowerBooks.

Actually, Nipsy (if that is your name ) I was talking about the Bubba that also goes by "Apple][Forever". Does that help clear things up Sparky???
Ok, Tipsy...Originally posted by Nipsy
He was obviously responding to the initial post, about DeskStars vs. WDs with a DeskStar experience.
So I still don't get why you're responding to HIM about not having read your post, when he's responding to the thread starter.
But, anyway, my name's not really Nipsy, it's Horatio Ezekial McDougalsteinerlitzberger.
