  • MacMall Part #: 7356611 
  • Manufacturer Part #: MS250GX 
  • Platform: Macintosh 

MCE recommends this drive for use with the PowerBook G4, PowerBook FireWire, and PowerBook G3 Series - 1999 since these computers can take advantage of the drive's high rotational speed and larger built-in cache. Using this drive, startup times may be decreased by as much as 35%! This carries over and correlates with significant speed increases in just about all areas related to hard drive access.

The MCE MobileStor 250GB Hard Drive Upgrade Solution for the PowerBook G4 includes a high performance 2.5" 250GB/5400RPM Parallel-ATA (EIDE/IDE) Hard Drive, installation kit and installation guide. No other piece of equipment, tool, or guide is needed to perform the upgrade.

The MobileStor 250GB Hard Drive is the highest capacity and one of the highest-performing hard drives ever made for the PowerBook G4. The tightly compacted data and rotational speed of 5400RPM gives a sustained data transfer rate of up to 66.25MB/Sec... faster than all other 5400RPM notebook hard drives.

This means you get extremely high capacity, extremely high performance, and yet the power economy of a 5400RPM drive which means this drive gives you the best of all worlds for a notebook drive. MCE Certified for: PowerBook G4. Also compatible with PowerBook G3.

System Requirements: PowerBook G4 or PowerBook G3

Important Note: This is a parallel-ATA (PATA) drive designed for the apple PowerBook G4 and PowerBook G3 only. It is not for use with apple MacBook PRO or MacBook laptops which use Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drives.
