    Will Garageband work on a computer with 512MB RAM and a 400MHz G4 processor (PowerBook)?

    Possibly, but the slow drive and processor will leave you crying.

    Not worth it mate, even if it does let you install. :(

    So what would be the minimum specs required for acceptable performance? I'd love to play with garageband on my 700Mhz G4 eMac, but it looks like it just won't do :(

    Yeah, itll be way to slow to "work" if it does Work. Sorry :(

    My 800MHz G4 iBook (with 640MB of RAM) plays well enough with it. I imagine the eMac should too, so long as it has more than 512MB of RAM. :)

    Darn! I really need to upgrade my memory, 384 just doesn't do it anymore...

    Yeah, that'll be a struggle. Aim for 512MB plus. :)
