    I'm using my new C2D 2.16/2g RAM Macbook and love it. The best part is the sheer speed of the interface, everything I do is instantaneous. Ever effect is instant.

    I love tiger's performance. Does anyone have any ideas about how the performance of the UI will be on Leopard?

    A possible slowdown because of increased system reqs? A bump do to taking advantage of dual cores and 64 bit? Will 2gigs of RAM be equivalent, or not so?

    Thanks for the input.

    Any Intel machine is going to run it spectacularly.

    There's a very recent thread about this - you might want to have a look...

    Personally, I think it will be fine on MBs.

    It's going to be the same, if not better. They have optimized much of the code to run faster, and you'll be running 64-bit so you should be all set.

    2 GB is plenty of RAM.

    ...and I wouldn't necessarily expect an increase of speed, but I wouldn't expect a slowdown either.

    no increase needed...

    with my current performance, i can't imagine how an increase in speed is possible. i just don't want to lose any snappiness to higher system reqs.

    We won't know the answer until it is tested in public. If there is any eye candy that is slow because of the GMA950, I am sure Apple will let you turn it off or tune it down. Going by the WWDC presentation, some things should improve thanks to greater use of multi-threading and better use of the dual core CPUs.
