It wasn't quite that bad for DVD's, but maybe I am jaded from
the generally crappy graphics you see in most laptops (it wasn't
until the T20 series with IBM, and two revs after the Toshiba
8000 that either of these lines had more that 4MB video ram...

movie out of the Pismo on just one (about 15 min short) battery.
