    I just bought a 867 G4 ED, with 1.5GB RAM, 40GB + 128GB drives. I installed Leopard on the 40GB and it runs great. It has the GeForce4 MX 32MB video card. Everything seems to run fine and smoothly. I've been using it from across the room via Screen Sharing - also fine.

    You might find the 512MB a bit on the light side, but RAM is fairly cheap.

    Yep it'll run.....albeit a bit slow w/ only 512mb of ram. Bump that to 1.5 or 2GB, and you'll be just fine :p

    I have Leopard running on several lower-spec'd machines, but all with 1.5 or 2GB of ram........ notta problemo :D
