Leopard on a Powerbook?

Hi everyone!

I was just wondering if leopard would run "well" on a 1.67 GHZ G4 Powerbook? It has 1 GB of Ram and either 64 or 128 mb of vram (can't remember it's my brothers!). I know it exceeds the minimum specs, but i was just wondering if I'll be able to get the most out of Leopard on my Powerbook?

Thanks in advance!(hope it made sense)

It will run fine, but increasing the RAM would be good...

It will run.

Yes, that just about sums it up.

It won't run anywhere near as fast as it would on its target platform, e.g. x86_64, but it will run.

Core Animation will run, just don't expect the mind blowing animation quality you see on the tech demos, those are some monstrously powerful boxes.
