    iBook G3 500mhz
    Just snapped one of these up of ebay to compliment my iMac G5 for use for Word and internet in the garden, on transport etc. Now I believe it has a cd rom only. Is there anyway to upgrade it to a combo drive - not fussed about a superdrive as I have one of those already in the iMac but it may be handy to be able to play DVDs on the move.

    If its not possible then no worries,

    Cheers,

    James

    Specs:
    iMac 2 GHz, 20"
    it is possible... the Toshiba SD-R2212 CD-RW/DVD-ROM is one of the options...
