Batcomputer, LOL.  Yeah, it's gotten it's fair share of looks, but few have seen 
it because I still can't lick this connectivity problem.  But I do love my 
Pismo.  I still think it's Apple's best designed laptop.

And your eMate doesn't? I can't take the batcomputer anywhere. People 
always ask about it. But sure, a hulk of a powerbook is a bit much for 
just taking a few notes.  I have a Pismo, too. Upgraded to G4, back when 
it was still cool. It triple boots Debian, Tiger, and OS 9.  I'm using my 
old Pismo as a router to share an "unlimited" (but slow!) 3G connection 
with WiFi-only devices. When I saw on the box that the Virgin Mobile USB 
3G modem would work with a Tiger G4 mac, I couldn't resist trying it out.
