Re: [OT] Hardware upgrades

I have a Powerbook G3 Pismo (bronze keys) w/a 500 MHz G3 processor and 256 MB of RAM. It dual-boots sid and OS9. It is my primary laptop, but being 6 or 7 years old, it is getting a little long in the tooth. What upgrades are available for this? I have seen ads for G4 upgrade kits, but the pages I found were 3 or 4 years old.

Is there anything that can be done to give this laptop a little more horsepower?

My Pismo's performance went up a lot after I upgraded it to 768 MB of RAM; I actually have an order in for PowerLogix' 900 MHz 750GX CPU upgrade, but they seem to be having problems with the company they're contracting with - I've been waiting for 2 months. Once they get that straightened out though, I'm looking forward to having a 900 MHz Pismo - with CPU frequency scaling, no less, and a 1 MB on-die L2 cache. Yummy.
