Thread: upgrade ibook hdd
12-20-2004, 10:22 PM #1keyvanGuestupgrade ibook hdd
Hey, just today I purchased my iBook from the applestore. The 999 dollar one, this thing kicks *** and i am using it regularly with the 250 GB hdd i have put in an external enclosure.The only thing bothering me is the extremely tiny hdd they have in here, the 30 gig, i didnt think it would be that bad, but it sucks, and i am wondering how i can upgrade it since i already bought it at the store. can i go to the genious bar or something and buy the hdd and have them install it, install it myself, buy it at frys and install it on my own, if anyone has any info i would love to hear it, perhaps what hdd i should get, etc. I would really appreciate any help you can give

be careful, just cause they work at the applestore doesnt mean they know what theyre doing, trust me.

yeah of course. but then i wouldnt be voiding the warranty in that case, but i think i can do this myself, if you guys would be so kind as to point out what hard drive, etc i need to purchase to be able to put in my ibook G4, anyone got any suggestions perhaps on brand too?

Hey, I think I will buy this and upgrade the hdd myself, would this work in the iBook? Thanks for the help, and i am loving this ibook. (honestly i asthetically like it much better than the powerbook)

Lol, i was very eager to start it last night that i forgot to borrow the camera from my friend. But probly when I buy my own camera ill open it up again, after you do it once (or twice since i forgot to plug in the POWER BUTTON wire) it becomes second nature
I could write an up to date guide on how to replace hd

You are crazy man...

hehe, if i can get a hold of a camera ill be sure to write up a guide, as the one i was kind of going by was totally off (ibook g3). i saved a ton of money this way, getting the 30 gb, and buying my 80 gb at fry's electronics, **** they (apple) dont even offer 80 gb hd's.
