Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

Posts: n/a

Does anyone know of any stores/shops that are authorized (translation: will not void warranty) to upgrade the Hard Drive on my iBook G4 from its current 40Gb 4200 model, to a newer/slicker/faster 80Gb 5400 model?

Also, are there any cooling concerns with these faster models? Any advice/experience is appreciated.

i thought the max HD for Ibook is 60GB? 80 is for PBook...

I've got a powerbook, and I'd like to know what's the best way to go about replacing my 40gig as well.

I'm talking about an aftermarket upgrade; NOT and upgrade from Apple. There are Toshiba 80Gb drives that you can get for these upgrades.
