    I have a MBP original with 1.83 ghz CD and 2 gb ram. I am upgrading the harddrive next week to a 200 gb 7200 rpm drive and was figuring on just buying leopard to install. Will my computer be able handle Leopard without incident. I have no issue with tiger but would not mind having the newest OS.

    Thanks for the input.

    Leopard will run fine on any computer built within the last 2-3 years. The MacBook Pro (any model) will run Leopard just fine.

    And the best thing: it seems to run even faster! On my 1,67 ghz G4 pb I did an update and not a clean reinstall, everything works fine and Leo certainly feels snappier than Tiger.

    Works Fine

    My iMac G4, 1 Ghz, 768 MB ram, Archive and Install, delete Archive is faster. My 3 year old Airport Extreme, HP 1300 and Canon i850 work.

    What more can I say?

    I currently have it installed on my G4 MDD 1.25 GHz w/ 768 megs of ram, and it works great. I also have it installed on my G5 1.6 GHz w/ 256 megs of ram, and it seems to work fairly well, too. I had to modify the installer a bit to get it to work due to the ram, though.

    Believe me, your computer won't be handling Leopard. Leopard will be handling your computer. And you'll learn to like it. You won't complain, because, after all, Tiger wasn't good enough--so trust in Leopard, and enjoy the ride.
