ibook G4 - Leopard or Tiger?
whoops, I meant PANTHER or Tiger
I've got a ibook 1.2 ghz w/ 1.25 gigs of ram. I'm going to be using it for school. Just some word processing, email/internet, and music. It came with panther and it has the latest updates..
Is it worth it to get Tiger for it? Will I notice a huge difference? Things are alright now, but I'm used to my MBP zipping through everything. I know it won't ever be as zippy as the MBP, but will Tiger make a huge difference?

from what I hear Leopard is faster on G4's and makes them much snappier.

Tiger is worth the upgrade from Panther. But why stop there, get Leopard.
I have Leopard running on a 1GHz 512RAM iBook and it's adequate, just. Perhaps with your higher specs Leopard could be your best option.
Edit: Leopard definitely not snappier than Tiger on a low end machine.
