So I recently bought a 1.42GHz G4 Mac Mini with 1GB of ram, and a combo drive.....

It comes with a 80GB IDE HDD and that wont fly with me...... I have a 160GB 2.5" 7200RPM Drive, but i have heard that there is a 128GB HDD Limit??

Thanks! Air

Mac Specs: Too many to list. Typically use an Intel iMac for most of my stuff and a Mini for web video.

That's really dated information that applies to really old systems. Check these out:

Macintosh: Using 128 GB or Larger ATA Hard Drives
How Big a Hard Drive Can I Put in My iMac, eMac, Power Mac, PowerBook, or iBook?

The G4 minis are old, but they aren't THAT old. :-)
