    A friend has been using a Pismo here and now in this modern age.

    Her five gig (or six) hard drive is reporting that it's got too much information on it.

    Can I easily put a 60 gig Toshiba 5400rpm drive in the Pismo?
    How hard is it to swap drives?
    And how hard is it to pull off info off the old drive with a firewire enclosure?

    I've actually never seen a Pismo, except I think I saw this movie DUPLEX with Ben Stiller yesterday, where wife, Drew Barrymore had a Titanium but Ben, the writer had what I think was a Pismo. The powerbook suffers a bit, so they probably wanted to sacrifice the older machine for the movie than the Tibook! Anyway, I'm sure it's easy with the Pismo but just wondered if anyone had some real world advice.

    Its very easy. Lift up the keyboard, loosen the screw, and pull it up.

    Any movie with Ben Stiller, the audience suffers a bit..
