    Hell no. Leopard will scream on your system. Absolutely fly. It will be awesome.

    Need anymore superlatives?

    I know there's been a few posts around here claiming this, but it is absolutely not true. Leopard (and any other upcoming software) will work wonderfully on your machine.

    Not for a minute. I've had this PowerBook for 51 months (according to coconutbattery) and I'm only considering upgrading this year. Technology's moving too fast for anyone to stay right on the forefront but a C2D MBP is as about as future-proof as you're gonna get.

    In the way of Leopard, I've had every major version of OS X on this 1GHz machine and I'm sure it could handle Leopard, I'm going to get a MacBook instead. Hell, this baby even runs FCS pretty fast too.

    If it works great for you now, then how can it be outdated tomorrow when it still runs all of todays software?

    It'll be fine. You may not have some perks, but those perks don't make previous systems obsolete.

    How do you know?

    It might release as the same buggy POS that OS X.4.0 released as...

    Then again it might not. The OSX kernel and bits of the architecture received a major rewrite between 10.3 and 10.4 which broke a lot of APIs and therefore caused issues with drivers and software. 10.5.0 will be released with the same APIs as 10.4.x, only with additional API calls for the extra features.

    So out of the two possibilities offered by you and Chundles, I'd say his is more likely.

    OS X traditionally runs BETTER on older hardware with each iteration. So Leopard should work fine. Especially since you have the current hardware (Right?) it'll only be around a year old when Leopard comes out anyway. There may not even be any hardware upgrades between then and now!
