Cracking Open the Apple G3 Pismo Firewire

Open to the world

The top half removed, we see the very basic boards of the unit.

Here is the funny thing to me, and partly what prompted me to do this comparison: If you take away the big battery, the bulky DVD drive (both of which the Air did) and slim down some of the framework, it would have been completely feasible to build a unit nearly as slim, had there been a demand for something smaller. Granted, the screen would have to be reworked and slimmed down as well, but I believe it could have been done.
