Well, it's a Mac, why would you want to throw it in the
trash (ok, maybe I should say *power Mac* :-)?  I was
surprised at how snappy 10.2 is with only 192MB of RAM.

I made a profit on the Pismo, and got a machine I'd never
laid hands on before to fiddle with.  It's a only a Graphite
SE (no FW--that's why the guy wanted the Pismo); I'll probably
clean it up and sell it.  Debating on putting a bigger HD in
it before selling.  I might get a 40GB FBD to put in the Pismo
I still have and swap the 20GB into the iBook.

Anyone have suggestions for on-line laptop drive vendors?
