    How will Leopard run on a 2.0GHz Macbook C2D 1GB RAM (soon to be 2)?

    It'll definitely be faster, Leopard is 64-bit like the C2D, also Apple has a tradition of making the OS faster with every iteration as long as you have enough RAM (1-2gb is probably enough for Leopard), it's not Vista :p.

    Are the regular Core Duos 64 bit also or just the C2D?

    The G5, Core 2 Duo and Xeon processors are 64 bit, anything else is 32 bit.

    Yeah but there are dev builds, and those using them say it is faster and it will get more optimisation for the final release.

    I think that the dev builds would be stripped down versions for developers to work on separate modules. I am hoping for a more responsive interface. Quartz 2d Extreme will take care of that if it is finally introduced.

    By the way, I used to live in Leamington Spa while at University of Warwick :)

    What about a 2.0GHz C2D Macbook with 1GB RAM?

    That is what the OP has, it'll run amazingly on your Mac too.
