    Regarding your question...no...this hard drive will not fit. It's an SATA drive...your Powerbook needs PATA/IDE.

    I bought one but it does have a very small amount of storage. And I just thought I would go ahead and buy one before they are all gone because of the flood in Malaysia.

    Nope...you can have a 2.5" PATA or SATA laptop drive. I have a couple in front of me within arms reach. Laptops used 2.5" IDE/PATA drives before SATA drives were even around.

    Please STOP the hard drive "fishing"! Just go to:

    Search Results for 2.5 hard drive at MacSales.com

    ...and pick the size you need/want. Or stick with the one you already ordered...you're getting very OCD over this!
