Do you feel that leopard lags considerably with the upgrade from tiger? I have an additional 512 on top of the stock 256 ram. I heard that you need the full gig of extra ram to have leopard perform reasonably. What do you all think?

Additional ram will help anyway, but I hear OS X is quite "usable" with the full 1gb of additional ram.

I havn't received my stick so i'm sticking with 10.4 for now.

My 1.2GHz iBook was fine with 1.25GB, awfully slow but still useful with 512MB.

I wouldn't really install it on anything less than a gig of RAM.
