Got my iMac today! (20" screen, 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, the basics. Although compaired to the PC world, this is mid-high end. ) I'm having absolutly no problems at all. Silent as a mouse, no crashing, works super great (Although I should hold my breath, I'm currently downloading the Tiger updates). You could say there is a slight granet, but it's just so miniscule that it doesn't matter at all. But here's the million dollar question: what would be the best way to do the Leopard upgrade? Keep in mind that this is a brand new system. I would imagine that doing a plain upgrade, not an Archive & Install, would work fine. I haven't installed anything besides the updates. Like I said, I doubt that anything bad could happen with a fresh Tiger install. This is probably how Apple test the upgrade sysetm anyway. What are your recomendations?
