Is this possible?

I have a 2.4GHz MBP and I am running out of room, my girl is also running out of room on her 05 model iBook.

So can I buy a larger drive for my MBP, clone existing drive onto new larger drive and then repeat the process with her iBook and use my OEM drive in place of the piddly little drive in her iBook?

Nope, iBook is IDE, MacBook SATA.

Did you forget about the Apple Tracker app, you 'isufferable' fool? ;)

Seriously - it's a lot simpler than that. PowerPC laptops = IDE; Intel = SATA.

IDE 2.5 inch drives are a little harder to find these days, but you may be able to dig something up on Staticice or eBay. :)
