Does anybody use the 17" Apple Studio Display with their PowerBook FireWire/Pismo?

The Apple web site says that you need a PowerMac G3 or G4 to use the ASD. I think that it would be really sick for Apple to ship a monitor that only hooks up to its desktops. Is there an adaptor that will do the job?

Until we get a 3 lbs sub-PowerBook, the 12-inch PowerBook will do.

Yes the 17 Studio works with the Pismo. I've done it myself. Pretty cool trick to run both the (substandard)LCD and a regular monitor!

For the record, teh 17" Studio Display works on almost any Mac or PC using a standard plug adapter (if needed).

Thanks for the positive answers. Can't wait to get my ASD.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't you keep the Pismo Closed and set it underneath teh Footprint of the ASD, as long as you have an external mouse and keyboard. That would be cool, and save desk space.

That should work nicely! I used my Pismo that way (albeit not with an Apple monitor) for a while, it works great!

sblunden, how do you suggest to use the Pismo closed? It'll fall asleep that way, isn't it?

I just found this out yesterday, if you plug in an external monitor, keyboard and mouse and plug the power cable into the wall, you can use the book closed.
