Depends on what exact Mac you have...iBook, PowerBook, Power Macintosh, etc.? Give us a little more information about the specs and we'd be glad to answer...

It would probably be better to just add an external FireWire drive. Then, you would have two, and could use it on other Macs in the future.

like the idea of having to carry less ! Thats why I changed to Macs! smaller and easier to work with.

So internal is what I am looking for.

cheers

Doesn't look great, but there is this....

It's actually cheaper than this combo...

Especially cheaper than these....
