    Actually all G3 including the Pismo (I have one) although I don't know
    if the drive bay accepts floppy drives. By the time this model was
    introduced, floppies were already on their way out.

    Mine was delivered with a DVD reader, which is the only part that really
    shows problems after 4 years and a half of daily use (and it has got
    its third battery but that's in line with expected battery life).
