Until now I have to say I never even knew a 2.5" 40GB 7200rpm hard drive existed.

I know of the 7200rpm 60gig 2.5" drives (such as the Hitachi 7K60 Travelstar) but not 40gb...

Still amusing bull dung on that eBay listing. No wonder people in my trade (sales, Apple sales...) get a bad name with jerks like that pushing out such crud. Still, anyone who doesn't check Apple out for a reference price first and blindly bids on eBay is stupid or has money to burn and they don't care.

And as said, fitting a superdrive into an iBook 12" or old 14" combo model or indeed 12/15" P'Book combo model isn't difficult, it is just fiddly. Just sourcing the slot loading mechanism and that's half the game won.

If people are stupid enough to go for this without doing a little research, then too bad for them.

Those questions don't get automatically posted, the seller has to answer then and there is an option for displaying on listing.

If he can get people to buy them for 1000 bucks too much, good for him.
