Well, "unfortunately" I managed to fix my Pismo (I was hoping to purchase a new PowerBook in the future). However, I am down to less than a 800 MB on my hard drive. Also, my PowerBook will freeze too frequently. So this leads me to make a stop at the Apple Store in the near future. I was thinking about just buying a LaCie d2 external hard drive, iSight and some software. However, I might just purchase a new PowerBook (when available) with an iSight and some software. The only problem is that I would probably only use it for a year or so. I have a year left in high school and when I go to college I'll probably use the laptops that the school gives me. Since I have some connections, price is no object. Any suggestions?
