Its much sturdier but its also 3-4 pounds heavier. My powerbook
weighs in at about 5 pounds. My dad's wallstreet weighs in at 9. I
also like the CPU power, the ability to use bus powered firewire
drives, and the ability to do non mirrored video on the VGA port.
I DO like the dual cardbus slots, scsi and serial/adb on the wall
street but I've found that my Keyspan adaptors work great for the 10%
of the time that I need them. All in all the balance is still in
favor of the pismo unless you need a more "legacy" powerbook.
