Got my Lombard a big brother today.....a 500MHz Pismo! I'm on it right now, and I just have to say that I am VERY impressed with its' performance compared to my old 500MHz iBook that I had (Cache & Bus speed difference), and is worlds better than my 333 Lombard. I always wondered what the hype was about the Pismo.... but now I understand! Even came with a much needed ZIP drive! Best of all, I didn't buy it... I traded the extra Dual 1.0GHz MDD I had that had no power supply or HD. The guy wanted a MDD G4, and I wanted his Pismo.
