OSX Leopard
« on: January 06, 2008, 03:37:08 PM »
Hi,

Im about to buy myself a new computer and like many others im not going to spend my money on any more Microsoft products (Not happy with Vista).
So now im thinking about getting a Mac or to be more precise, i have been looking at a Macbook.
So now my question is, how well does Leopard run on a 2Ghz Macbook with 1G memory?
are there any Macbook owners here? what do you think of the Macbook and Leopard?

Well I'm typing this under Leo on a Mac-Mini, and it's quite o.k.

The Mini has a slighly lesser clock, 1GB and a slower (older) GFX-system intregrated into the Northbridge, so the MacBook should be o.k. too.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

As already reported it should scream!  I'm running Leopard on a twin 1.8 Ghz G5 system....best OS X yet!

My MacBook is a 1.83GHz Core Duo, with 1.5GB of RAM and Leopard is *rapid* :evilgrin: Remember that the newer Intel Macs use Core 2 Duo processors, which are even faster!

Go for it :-D

Eugh, I *hate* those ads. They are childish and asinine. Apple don't need to stoop to such tactics. All they need to do is show people that they can do everything they do on their PC with a Mac (for those who don't want to switch because they don't think they can work on the Mac) and also show the benefits (to show people why it's worth switching). Those ads are just poking fun, which is not very classy.

Now the BSOD on the screen of the Windows Server icon in Leopard is a different story ;-)

I've not upgraded to Leopard yet, but Tiger is a dream... my computing needs are now totally met by OSX... should you find this to not be the case, then simply BootCamp into Windows :-)

Buy a macbook, fine choice today. I got the black one (160 Gb HD - *I added 1Gb RAM*). Know that with Parallel Desktop under Leopard, I can start Windows XP and, under the virtualized XP, another machine like AROS from VMWare. And Leopard works like a charm.

happy new year

Actually, if you can wait, don't buy until after the 12th of January. Apple are announcing new MacBook models in their keynote presentation.

I dont see much advantages on Leopard over Tiger, namely because Tiger was already such a fine product.

Am I the only one that actually understands the "Get A Mac" ads?

Notice the "PC" is a geek, and the Mac is more "hip / cool" basically its stating, PC's are for nerds, and Macs are for cool non-geeky people. It's not about PC's vs Mac. Besides, it's only fair for Apple to run those ads, considering that Vista is a poor attempt at making Windows more like OS X. Alot of the so called "features" in Vista are either blatantly stolen from OS X, or are uber crappy wanna-be versions.

By the way, I love the "Get A Mac" commercials!  :-D  8-)

Well, Tiger is a proven mission critical OS... One would have to go a long way to find a more reliable system... for this reason I've have decided to stay with Tiger for the time being.
