    1. Update leopard by installing it?
    or
    2. Erase my current harddrive, and do a complete fresh install?

    I'm debating between these 2 choices.
    Obviously the benefit of #1 is time...very time saving for just upgrading it.
    But for #2, I can erase all the junk that might be hidden in the system, making it run faster or something...

    HELP ><
    thank you!

    The most tested setup would be a clean install.

    Erase and install and then migration assistant should work well.

    Most everyone in the tech world will recommend a fresh install vs an upgrade with a new OS. It just helps avoid some unusual and obnoxious problems. You'll usually see speed increases with fresh installs.
