Hi - I just picked up a 550mhz Titanium Powerbook G4 with a 20gb hard drive and have a very simple quesiton. Will a standard laptop hard drive (I've got a spare 40gb sitting in a broken HP laptop...) work in these, or are they physically a different type of notebook drive that I'd have to replace with?

Thanks in advance for info.

Nope, they just use a standard laptop HD like any other laptop. You should be fine.
