    I am thinking of buying a Powerbook Titanium with 1Ghz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HD, with Leopard installed.
    I was wondering how this system will perform. Does anyone have a very similar setup, or any info?
    I amwondering how fast it will startup, the overall speed of opening windows and Apps...web browsing...anything you think could help.

    Thanks a lot!

    My sister has a g4 1ghz titanium with 512MB ram and 60GB HD and it runs tiger fairly quickly. As far as leopard goes, I'm not sure how fast it would perform with 512mb of ram and that processor, but with 1 GB it would probably run reasonably smoothlikish.

    i think it is about time people start moving from power books and ibooks to the new generation of macbooks and mac books pro. But other wise, leopard is quite a system which preferably requires two cores, one for the work, other for the graphic generation in order to run everything smoothly. But you can give it a try, but really it is quite the same as trying to run vista on a machine that is desgined for xp, as xp is simmilar to tiger, as it is not so graphical and stuff. So i would rather think that it wont preform well, just see the minimum requirements and if it will meat it then it just might work ok.

    As long as you don't put too many random programs on it, it'll run beautifully! :)

    I am currently using a Titanium 1ghz with 1GB of RAM as Bittorrent computer and it runs Leopard fine. Just don't expect too much snappiness. Not to say it runs slowly, but its much slower than even the most basic Intel Mac.

    Let me know if you have more specific questions.

    Got it for $350. I thought it was a pretty good deal

    thanks for the feedback everyone. I guess if Leopard is too slow I can always just switch back to Tiger.
