I am not running it till I buy it... But I was wondering what you are running it on and how it is running?

Nothing yet, sat here at work waiting for the clock to tick around to 6pm. Then when I get home, it will be installed on the following.

MacBook Pro (mine) 2.16Ghz 2GB RAM
MacBook (wife's) 2.16Ghz 1GB RAM
Mini (Ours) 1.42Ghz PPC 512MB RAM.

Thinking I'll need to bump up the RAM in the mini.

And yes I will be buying the Family Pack, as I did with iLife 08 and iWorks 08

Going to the store to pick a copy and an iMac 24" Core2Duo 1GB RAM 2.4 GHZ for my family.

I'll be installing a copy for my MacBook Pro 17" Core2Duo 2GB RAM 2.33 GHZ
Then, I'll install a copy for my dad's MacBook Core2duo 1GB RAM 2.0 GHZ

In the next coming weeks, I'll probably buy 4GB RAM to put in the iMac and watch that baby run! I'll probably put the extra 1GB stick in my dad's comp to bump it to 1.5GB.

1.42Ghz PowerPC G4 iBook with 1GB Ram and leopard is running great. Only have one problem - I can't seem to cut and paste text between safari and widgets on Dashboard (I use that to translate words I don't understand fully in Japanese) - and in general the system seems to be running faster than under Tiger. Love it.

I'd really like to hear how Leopard runs on PPC Macs. I've got an iMac G5 (2.0GHz) and I'm reluctant to upgrade if there's a performance hit. I already read that some iChat/PhotoBooth features like backdrops are disabled on PPC Macs, which is disappointing but not the end of the world.

iMac G5 1.8GHz (no iSight) 1GB RAM...

Very stable, fast and responsive. Love it! :)

The only setback is that menu bar transparency is disabled on older machines. :(

Go ahead and upgrade. :D

My old 1.8ghz AMD desktop. It is still running a beta version. Pretty solid.

Will be installing 10.5 on my 2ghz core duo macbook pretty soon here.

On one of my Macs of course
Aloha everyone,

My Macs are also reflected in my sig and both are running Leopard, although I would like to bump up the RAM in my MBP to 4GB and my iMac to 2GB. I do have a question, however - the max RAM I can install in my MBP is 3GB, or at least was with Tiger. Has anyone who's using a 2G MBP (non-SR Core2Duo model) tried to put 4gb RAM in theirs while running Leopard, and if so how much RAM actually shows up?

My Mac: 2.4 Ghz MBP 2 gigs ram, 160 gigs storage. It seems to run Leopard very well, very snappy. Even safari is snappier (seriously) :D.

The profiler will register the 4 gigs of ram, but no software will be able to take advantage of it all.

2 Machines at the moment:

Mac Pro 2xQuad Core 3ghz
9GB RAM
4 internal, 5 external drives
30" and 23" Cinema Displays

PowerMac G5 Dual 2.5GHz
6.5GB RAM
2 internal drives
23" Cinema Display

(Waiting for Install until Leaf Capture updates their software)
MacBook Pro 17" Santa Rosa 2.4GHz
2GB RAM
250GB HD, 750GB External

Runs fast on all of them. I had it installed on the MacBook Pro but when I found out that my Leaf Capture software wouldn't work in Leopard I had to reinstall 10.4.9. The MacBook Pro kind of ran it slow while I had it on there.
