7200 RPM Too Hot for PowerBook? - Mac Portable

I'm thinking of replacing the 5400 RPM drive in my TiBook 667 with a Hitachi TravelStar 7K60 7200RPM 60 GB drive. It's an ATA 100 drive. Is this feasible? TIA! Davoud -- usenet *at* davidillig dawt com...

    It was for us. Only had it in there for a year or so. So no dramatic
    increase in fan activity, but we specifically used a Coolpad. I have
    heard some arguement that some surfaces will keep PBs with faster drives
    cooler- a metal desk verses a wooden desk for example.

    The other factor was that we had it set to spin down the disk regularly
    and did no intensive disk write activities. Not sure how rendering or
    the like would affect that.

    iTunes made the high speed fan come on.
