Hard drive advice! please!
will a ATA/100 work in a 6500? (6500s takes IDE drives)

It should. The Western Digital 30GB I just installed in my 5400 works brilliantly...

Yup, backwards compatibility is great.

I suggest looking for a 7200 RPM model over a 5400 RPM model. It may be a little more expensive, but the speed you gain is tremendous. In fact, I have found that 7200 RPM drives, usually boost the machines performance (In EVERYTHING it does) by about 30-35%. That is a huge gain.

The Mac Information Depot. Why go anywhere else?

Take a look at the IBM Desktar 75GXP drives (you can get one on Amazon.com)


Great drives, great speed, and very quit.

The IBM 75GXP has now been superseded by the IBM 60GXP...
