Hello all, once again. I'll try to keep this one short, as I know none of you actually enjoy reading my posts. I've had a 40 GB iPod Photo for about a year now, and it's actually been a pretty decent iPod. But, it's old and I'm quite accident prone. A disk based iPod and me are just a recipe for disaster. So, since Christmas is coming up, I've been thinking about asking for a new one, and retiring the photo to my car iPod, since that's where it spends most of its time as it is. As of yet, I still haven't decided whether I want the nano, classic or touch. I may make a separate thread asking about this, but for now I have a different issue. As is listed in my sig, my main machine is a 1.42 GHz eMac running Tiger. My favorite Mac in the wold, paired with my favorite OS in the world. However, I haven't been keeping much up to date with these new iPods, and as I was browsing them on the online Apple Store last night, I noticed a disturbing fact; the classic will work on Tiger, but the nano and touch require Leopard. ...Well, crap. I really don't want to upgrade to Leopard, and I actually wouldn't really have to since I have two PC's that run Windows XP SP3, which will work with all those models. But I have all my media on my eMac, and I'd like to keep it that way. Plus I get the feeling at some point XP will not be supported anymore and I'll be screwed all over again. So I'm thinking about just biting the bullet and leaving my sweet Tiger behind. So, I purpose a simple question. I've had a 1.33 GHz iBook G4 with 1.25 GB of RAM running Leopard before. And I must say, I was not impressed with the performance. I quickly downgraded it back to Tiger and kept it like that until I sold it. But, my eMac has a slightly faster processor, and the ability to have 2 GB of RAM. If I were to do that (Currently it only has 512 MB) would Leopard run any better then it did on my iBook? Like, at basically the speed Tiger does now? I just don't want to get this iPod, and have to basically sacrifice my computer to use it, you know? Thanks for all the input.
