Quote from: "brams"Do the same caveats exist for Rhapsody 5.6 as they do for OS X on a Wallstreet, within the first 8gb partition?
Quote from: "nextchef"What is this 8gb limit you guys are talking about. Is it a wallstreet specific thing, or do other G3 based laptops have the same issue.Chef
Quote from: "nextchef"Does OSX run acceptably on a wallstreet, especially at only 300-350mhz. Will tiger even install, or do you need to us 10.1 or 10.2. Can you even stick enough memory in one, since in my experience OSX does not run very well without at least 512m, and a gig or more is best.Chef
Quote from: bramsQuote from: "nextchef"All PowerBook G3's are awsome, Pismo is just a fantastic laptop, I'm gonna buy another soon for spares.Simply true. I love my Pismo and I will give it a special part on my domain, soon. It is one of Apple's major products that will never go out of style.J

Quote from: "PowerPC"Well someone was faster typing than me So let's start contradicting your opinion brams, will we? :lol: "Pismo" is a great Laptop indeed (since i wouldn't had get one if it weren't).Probably one of the very best NoteBook desings ever but:My configuration is pretty close to yours regarding ram and a fast HD (Toshiba @ 5400 rpm 16 mb cache) but i'm stuck with the original G3@400 mhzAs you say Altivec will indeed substitute for a Quartz extreme capable Graphics Card and speeds up the GUI fore sure but i think it's still very poor (can see that on my sisters original G4 Titanium - the 400 mhz modell).As well low display resolution is a problem - at least fore me, wouldn't want to do anything but playing the games that won't start in classic on that machine. To the point - although it may be supported i'd use it only for OS 9.But i agree for the faster HD - think it's the only noticeable difference between my G4 1Ghz PowerBook and my G4 1,67 Ghz PowerBook (had the built to order option for the 7200 rpm drive in it)

Quote from: "RacerX"Well, I use my Wallstreet for Mac OS X most of the time (pretty much everything I write is written on this thing).
