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).
