    Hi,

    I am planning in getting a Mac Mini around October\November time, once Leopard has been released, but am a bit concerned that the Mini won't be up to running Leopard, based on the graphics card it has.

    Anyone have an opinion on whether it would struggle with Leopard or not ? (I'm fully aware that it's difficult to say given that no one has seen Leopard yet :D )

    I'd be surprised if Apple released an OS that their own kit couldn't run well, but I'm no expert on all things Mac !

    If it helps, I was thinking of getting the 2 Ghz model with 2 GB of RAM.

    Cheers

    No reason why the mac mini won't run Leopard ... the mini uses the same graphics chips as the macbooks so it makes no sense to release an OS that won't run on their current inventory !!

    In fact I know that Leopard will run on something as lowly as a 1.83Ghz Core Duo (single) :devil::devil: ... so don't worry !!

    Cool...Thanks

    Does the :devil: indicate I might have been wrong when I said no-one had seen Leopard yet ?:D

    Well there are a few unofficial copies floating around the net so seems rude not to give it a try !!
