Mac OS X Three reviews of Mac OS X Leopard, to be released coming Friday. David Pogue writes: "Leopard is powerful, polished and carefully conceived. Happy surprises, and very few disappointments, lie around every corner. This Leopard has more than 300 new spots - and most of them are bright ones." Walt Mossberg concludes: "Leopard isn't a must-have for current Mac owners, but it adds a lot of value. For new Mac buyers, it makes switching even more attractive." Edward C. Baig of USA Today writes: "With Leopard, Apple's operating system widens its lead aesthetically and technologically. Whether the sixth major release of OS X in as many years puts a dent in Microsoft's dominant market share is another matter entirely." Thanks to MacWereld.nl [Dutch] for pointing these reviews out.

Tiger: PPC G3,4,5 (as low as 400 MHz I think) / Intel, must have Firewire, 256MB RAM, 512MB realistic
Leopard: PPC G4,5 (867Mhz+) / Intel, 512MB, 1GB realistic

RAM is key really, the more the better. A maxed out iMac G4 can run Tiger surprisingly well, when Vista would be unusable. I have a 700MHz G4 iMac with 768MB RAM and it boots in a pleasent 45 seconds.
