Thanks for all the answers, guys. I am from Brazil. I just found refurbished or used 7200 rpm drives and the biggest, a 100GBs HD. I think Matt Barnes must be right, they are no longer procuced, just the SATA ones. I`m gonna buy a 5400 rpm/8Mb buffer drive. Best regards!

To my knowledge 7200 RPM IDE/ATA hard drive are no longer produced, but I could be wrong. You will see a slight performance increase in the opening of documents or opening of programs, but you may just need to go with a 5400 RPM drive.

Yes, it will run just fine with a 7200 drive.

Here's a current new Hitachi 0A26597 TRAVELSTAR 2.5" 100GB 7200RPM IDE : http://www.google.com/products/catalog?c...

Here's three more new ones: http://discountechnology.com/Products?se...

This DRIVE here is what you might be looking for. It is currently out of stock, but you can look for it elsewhere. I think there is a nice performance gain from 5400 to 7200 RPM upgrade. Go for it, good luck!!

Thanks all you guys. After 7 hours, a lot of coffee, some Google Translator and with a precious help from my wife, the iBook is running OSX 10.5.8 in a Maxtor 160Gb, 5400 rpm (the only one that I found here, in Santa Efigênia street, São Paulo). I am very happy and grateful for this site and its amazing community. Thanks again guys, you are the best. And sorry for my bad english!
