Is a PATA SSD upgrade possible?

Thanks to the guys at tonymacx86 for pointing me to this site. This is a godsend! I have to resolve my "black screen/no external display" issue first of all, but thought since I'm opening this puppy up anyway, can I upgrade to a PATA SSD? Is it even worth considering? I'll order some tools and a gig of PC2700 in the mean time.

Is this a good question?

Are you sure you want to do this?

Between your systems age and running such an old OS (doesn't support TRIM services) it might be better to save up for a newer system.

Besides 128 GB or even the 32 GB (if that is what it is) is such a small size to be that useful Vs a PATA 500 GB HD for about the same money.

You're right Dan, I'm not at all sure I want to do this. Thanks for the perspective. Best to just get my screen working first and go from there.

Yes, thats the wise direction for now ;-} Don't tell anyone, I still have my old iBook just so I can run the OS-9 stuff I still have. Last year I replaced the HD to give it new life for another few more years. Good Luck!

You can install this into the iBook, it's an IDE SSD and should work like a charm.

Too bad the picture in that amazon link shows a 128GB SSD when it's actually a 32BG model :-(
