Is this a good computer? I already have a 20" intel iMac to do all my heavy lifting, but I want a laptop that I can take to class, take some notes on, use iChat, and surf the web. Anyone have a Pismo that can give me some advice on how well this beast will handle all that? Thanks!

It will do take notes, chat, and surf the web just fine. but personally I wouldn't pay 325 for it.

That's a little expensive for a pismo in my opinion. I just bought a 500 mhz ibook for $175 and that's a pretty good price. You can buy others like those for $250 at megamacs.com. If you look on ebay for a bit, you might find a great deal. If you want to surf the web and don't want and expensive airport card you should buy a pismo at a cheap price and buy a wireless card for it. You're on the right track, but that pismo is too expensive.

You're right, it is too expensive. I'm sure he'll come down in the price though.

What's the most I should pay for this? $250? Or is that too high as well?

Looks like he wouldn't go under $300. Guess that solves my problem! Back to eBay...
