I currently own a 1.83Ghz, Core 2 Duo, 2 GB Macbook. Will Leopard run as it is supposed to on my Mac?

Unlike a nother company apple does not release operating systems that will not work on last years model. Tiger can run, though with some unease on G3 and runs without trouble on good G4's. Based on early reports Leopard is faster than tiger so odds are it will support the G4 platfrm, and with no doubt a new intel based macbook.

Same answer as I always give:

New versions of Mac OS X have always run faster on newer hardware than the previous version.

I have not tested Leopard, but I imagine history will repeat. Early reports suggest this is the case as well.

Although the comment in question may be somewhat inaccurate (I'm sure Vista runs on older hardware, although not with all bells and whistles), said comment is merely the opinion of a customer, based on his/her dissatisfaction with a particular piece of software. Libel it is not. A rant, maybe.

Yeah because 2005s computers can't run Vista ... Atleast if you bought some redicilously speced ones for 1/10 of the price of a mac! buhu..

I was running Vista on a Dell Optiplex P4 from 2004 for a while. It seemed to run just fine, though made the fan run like a 747 most of the time.
