    Hi All,

    I want to put Leopard on my G4 1 GHz Powerbook with 512 mb of RAM. It is currently running Panther quite nicely. Will Leopard just totally kill it and make it drag? I know technically I can put Leopard on it, but this is a case of "could" vs. "should". Has anyone tried Leopard on its low-end of system requirements for computers?

    While it isn't a direct comparison, Leopard runs great on my G4 1.5ghz with 512 megs of RAM. I think its snappier than Tiger after a clean install. Maybe that will help your decision.

    Thanks

    That is a good data point. Nice to know if might feel snappier than Tiger.
