    I'm wondering what would be the minimum requirements for a PowerBook G4 to run OS X 10.4 Tiger smoothly. I'm planning on purchasing a PowerBook G4 and I'm wondering simply because I don't want to get a model that ends up lagging throughout 10.4. I'm mainly worried about processor power and the amount of RAM. Thanks for any help! I'm thinking 1.0 GHz as the minimum with 512mb RAM, but I may be wrong.

    I had a g3 ibook at 800mhz, with only 384 megs of ram it ran real smooth however to be on the safe side atleast 512mb ram, and the 1ghz processor would be real nice :)
