    Yep, it should be able to run Leopard pretty well. Make sure you have enough RAM...more is always better at the levels available to these machines. I believe Apple officially says it can take a maximum of 1 GB, but it can unofficially use 2 GB. The full 2 GB should give you a very nice system with Leopard. 1 GB should be okay, but you may notice some sluggishness at times.

    Of course, that's probably true if you're running Tiger on it already, depending on what you use the machine for.

    Here's a list of eMac's which indicates if they meet Leopard's requirements (apart from DVD drive):

    eMac (2002): NO
    eMac (ATI Graphics): Low end: NO, Mid-High end: YES*
    eMac (USB 2.0): YES*
    eMac (2005): YES*

    * RAM upgrade required from standard configuration and DVD drive needed to install

    Can I upgrade my eMac processor and CD/RW drive?

    Hi,

    Here are my specs:

    700/512/40G/CDRW/LL

    Can I upgrade my processor and put in a DVD drive so I can run Leopard? If so could you tell me about how much. Thanks

    Unfortunately you cannot upgrade the eMac processor. You can, however, put in a DVD drive.
