    Hello.
    I was wondering how to upgrade my ibook g4.
    I was thinking of upgrading the hard drive and installing snow leopard.
    I have some questions though.
    What hard drives can I use with the ibook and if snow leopard can run on the ibook?
    Advice appreciated
    Thanks

    you cannot install snow-leopard (10.6) but you can install leopard (10.5) and if you do, make sure you have at least 1gb of ram installed. finally, you'll need ide/pata 2.5" laptop harddrives.
