Apple iBook G4/1.33 14-Inch (Late 2004 - Op) Specs (M9627LL/A*)

Western Digital - Scorpio Blue 320GB Internal EIDE Hard Drive for Laptops - WD3200BEVERTL

is this the same drive owc sells as WD3200BEVE

is the RTL at the end of WD3200BEVERTL reference to a retail package as opposed to what owc sells but without the packaging ?

the best buy specs show the Data transfer rates up to 133MB/sec.

unless i'm misreading the specs,

the owc specs show the Data transfer rates up to 100MB/sec.

it looks like what I need but not sure.

i have a tech guy that's going to do the switch and want to make sure i'm not wasting his time with the wrong hard drive.

are eide drives interchangeable with ata-100's ?

thanks for any input, brian

brian. this should work but to be honest I am not sure ...

The things you should be worried about is if it will fit and heat. .. I have placed 120GB drives in to the iBooks and there were no problems.. with fit or heat

The drive is capable of going faster than the ata controller on the ibook .. but it will only go as fast as the controler..

I think you will be safe going with this one but just make sure bestbuy will take it back if it does not fit or work for some reason
