Some people have asked for benchmarks on the Pismo. Here is the score on xBench using version 1.2 on a Pismo with FastMac G4 550, 256mb memory (i know), stock hard drive (going to be replaced with a Toshiba 60gb 5400 16mb) and FastMac DL superdrive, using osx.4.3.

100 points is for standard for comparison using dual 2.0 G5

total 18.21
cpu 25.87
memory 14.2
graphics 21.68
disk 10.01

The harddrive upgrade and another 256 will help it out alot. This is perfect for watching dvds, surfing, word processing and doing light photo work.
