    It was the first G3 Powerbook with onboard FireWire. Introduced in the
    summer of 2000, wasn't it?

    And the only G3 power book that you can use TWO BATTERIES
    at one time. Just bought a new one for mine and am
    showing it to have NINE HOURS of time left.
    The second battery goes into the right bay
    and is the ONLY POWERBOOK (including all the new ones)
    that has this capability. Am using an airport card also,
    that works great. And with 512 MB of actual ram,
    I can do whatever I want. Using 9.0.4.

    Actually, the Lombard (1999 Powerbook with USB and SCSI) can take two
    batteries, IIRC. The Lombard and Pismo have the same "footprint" and
    same case shape. Expansion bay devices for one will fit the other --
    with the exception that a DVD player needs some kind of fix to work in
    the Lombard.

    not true. The PowerBook 500 series and the previous PowerBook G3 Series
    (1998 and 1999 models, aka Wallstreet and Lombard) could also take 2
    batteries at a time.

    Back when my PowerBook 540 was still newish, I booted from a RAM disk
    (so I didn't need to spin the hard drive), turned off the backlight (I
    was in direct sunlight) and got over 6 hours of actual use out of the 2
    batteries in that machine.
     

    OWC (macsales.com) started selling new batteries that claim 30% greater
    life than the Apple batteries.
