    Hi all,
    Hope someone can give me some advice here! I fancy updating to iLife'06, mainly due toiphoto, iweb and imovieHD. Has anyone experienced them on a G4 iMac or iBook?

    Does it run fine - or is it quite obvious that the G4 is straining?!

    Thanks in advance for any advice,
    Steve

    My 800MHz G4 iBook handles iPhoto, iWeb, Garageband and even iMovie well enough. Apart from iWeb (obviously) they aren't really any slower or more resource-hungry than iLife 05 apps. I haven't tried iDVD yet. :)

    On my iBook (see sig) iLife 06 is running fine. I can't compare it to 05 as I never bought it, but the speed's pretty much the same as iLife 04.

    Hope this helps
