Is This The Right HDD?

I want to buy a HDD for my powerbook, and I'm fairly certain this is the one I need, but I want to be sure this is the correct one before I purchase it.

So is this the proper HDD for my powerbook?

You folks here are absolutely the BEST!! Thank you so very much.

It's certainly one thing to have the directions, and the nerve, to install the different parts in our computers.

Thank you ifixit!!

BUT without the knowledge of the correct parts we'd be lost.

Thank you answer members!!

AGAIN thank you!!


I appreciate the thanks. It's all the pay most of us get.


Well done Rich +
