Do you think it will it be possible to put 10.5 in my granddads G3 iMac? It's a "Snow" 700 MHz with 1gig of ram.
of course, can't be sure until end.The pre-release documentation states the following system requirements:
* A G4 (800 MHz or faster)-, G5- or Intel-based Mac
* A DVD drive
* At least 512 MB RAM
* 7 GB of hard disk space 12 GB if Xcode is also installed
* The latest Firmware
* FireWire Ports
Mmm, so far, there hasn't been any evidence that Leopard is faster with sufficient RAM than Tiger, but there's also no evidence I'm aware of that it's *slower*. I'd expect the final optimized version to follow the typical pattern, meaning that, outside of some of the fancier features, general use of your same applications you're using today will feel as fast or faster on top of Leopard, although the memory footprint will increase.the CPU is too slow, to run it well and the graphics card would not be able to handle any of the effects.
