I just managed to start my old Pismo after finding it in the closet and it was dead. However thanks to these forums I got it back up and running. While having it opened I noticed it has an old Hitachi TravelStar 20Gig 4200 RPM hard drive in it. Since I can not put in more memory or replace the CPU, not really worth it even if I could find one of the CPU upgrade kits that someone sold a couple of years back, so that leaves the hard drive. I noticed before in other laptops that second to the CPU hard drive can really influence speed and since the PB is in great shape I was thinking if it would be worth it to replace the HD? Maybe even with a SSD Drive? What do you think, anyone who has replaced their hard drive in the Pismo?
