trying to get the last bit of life from my beloved
12"PowerBookG4 (bought new Feb.2006)
a question...
what is the largest harddrive i can run in the machine?
right now i'm still running the original 80gb
(Toshiba MK8026GAX, ata-100, 5400rpm, 16mb buffer)
i don't know a whole lot about this...
am guessing the whole pata vs. sata will be my issue?

looking for 150 or 200 gb (can i run a solid state drive?)

1.5GHz, 1.25GB ram, OS X 10.4.11
QUOTE Thanks
