    Minimum specs for Leopard: G4 800Mhz processor, 512Mb RAM. 1Gb recommended.

    Why wouldn't it?

    As long as you have 1GB (or preferably 2GB) RAM then you are set.

    Tiger is pretty much unusable with under 1GB though anyway (though you may only eralise this when you use it with more for a while!)

    Yes, Tiger works great in 512MB. Course, nothing ELSE can run at that point.

    Any Intel Mini will run Leopard like a champ.
