    I am planning to buy leopard little after the macworld when 10.5.2 is released. But I want to make sure that I have enough ram currently to run leopard with minor hiccups. I have around 768mb of ram, but I'm planning to upgrade 1.25 gb in the future after i get leopard or before leopard. I just reformat my external HD to Mac OS X HFS Volume. Just incase when I back up my internal HD and if I have any problems installing leopard

    1.25GB will be enough for Leopard. I think 768 is the minimum required RAM for it.

    768mb is a tad tight - the system may well do a fair bit of swapping if you're running anything much more than lightweight apps. 1gb or more is fairly comfortable - obviously more is better, but we have a G5 DP1.8 at work with 1gb running Leopard very happily.

    I'm going to say the same thing as everybody else.

    My 2 cents.

    thanks too all who responded with a quickness to my answer. But I guess I'll wait until I get ram along with Leopard, so I don't force my computer to work harder.
