Which version? Panther should run OK. I don't know about Tiger...it's worth a try though!

have you had personal experience?

i have an old AIO that has like 500+ mbs of ram running at 266mhz and 10.2 runs very bearable on....

i might just save and buy a newer model.

Panther runs fine on my 500 MHz Pismo G3.

I should point out that Tiger runs FASTER than Panther. ITASOR is incorrect on that. If Tiger will install on that model (not sure on that, don't have Tiger) it'll run better than Panther.

well tiger doesnt support lombards...on macs with FW (pismo for example)

i could put tiger on 2 ways...

1. install it on the laptop HD in an external enclousure connected to a mac with FW.

2. use XPostFacto

Thanks

Yes, i have a clamshell 366mhz with 320mb ram and it runs fine. I guess it depends on what kind of performance you are looking for! My opinion is that Panther runs plenty good enough for my everyday tasks!
