    You need the older IDE (Parallel ATA) style. I'm not sure how much it can take, but I'm sure 120 GB is well within its capabilities. Some shops still carry it - see valuepc.com.ph

    I had ynzal upgrade my ibook g3 hard drive about 3 years ago, (from 10 gigs to 80). Cost something like P 4,000 or thereabouts. Give them a call.

    It's hard to remove, many steps required.

    My bro has a new p-ata (IDE) hdd for his PowerBook G4. It's 200-300gb. I can't remember. You can pm me if you want to buy it. I am not posting this in the ads yet because he is not 100% ready to sell it. But since he was toying with the idea, I can convince him.
