I'm going to have to replace the 45G 2.5" IDE drive in my "new" (to me,
at least) PowerBook G4 [0], because it sounds like steel ball bearings 
in a glass jar.  That is, unless the Hitachi/IBM TravelStar drives from 
five years ago were *supposed* to sound like that..


[0] 15" 667Mhz, GigE.  Replaced my iBook G4 12.1".
