I've got a 12" G4 powerbook. I'm not going to do any processing on it,
but it was trivial to put a big hard drive in it. They can be picked
up for practically free these days, and aren't much bigger than net
books.

Here's a script I use on my desktop that would be trivial to modify
for working with mac:

#!/bin/bash

mkdir $1
date
ls /media/disk/dcim/*/* |wc
mv /media/disk/dcim/*/* $1
date

The first step is learning to take great photos,
