Hi All, After borrowing a friends iBook G4 for a year I am now Macless. Boo! Or so I thought... I found an old Powerbook Pismo in a box that I didn't even know I had! I've got it working, but it has some issues, and I intend to fix them, but why stop there? It has a 400mHz PowerPC G3 processor with 256 MB SDRAM, a 10G HDD (with issues) and a duff battery. My main constraint is money, so if you have any tips of thrifty or second hand places that would be a plus. I know a bit about how to unscrew things in general but have never fixed a Mac before. Project: Fix all issues with said Pismo and upgrade component parts so that it can be comfortably used as my main computer. Target: Replace 'clicky' 10G HD with Issue-free HD with around 80G storage Add wireless capability Improve RAM Replace battery Fix or replace broken DVD drawer (the button is missing but it can be popped open) Encase in diamonds with a flame emblem on the lid (optional) Method: Fix all parts myself, over time, on a really tight budget and share my newly gained knowledge with others. So, I know it's never going to be a kick-ass computer, but in the age of reduce, reuse and recycle I thought this would be a good project that would also help me save a small fortune on a new Mac. I'm going to do this one step at a time and could do with your advice. I'm in the UK if that's important. If you would be so kind as to help me out, that would be great. Question 1 What does the RAM look like and how much can I stuff into the machine before it becomes a problem? Go!
