Ok peeps looking at increasing the size and speed of my iBook G4 hdd and i was woundering if there was a specific make or size of HDD needed for the it. As the current 30gb is alittle slow on the uptake any suggestions and idea's would be great.

Make sure you purchase the correct HDD for your iBook. It uses an Ultra ATA drive not SATA. The one you have in the iBook is probably a 4200 RPM model, OWC has some very nice 5400 RPM models that are inexpensive. That should give you a speed boost and faster access to the drive.

Regards.
