I have a mini with Panther and only 256 Ram if I upgrade to Tiger will it be too slow?

Right now Panther seems fine but thinking Toger will not like 256 ram.

thanks

Yep, I think you are correct. I have the "spinning beach ball" after installing Tiger. I know I need more RAM and it will be my next purchase for the Mini. I am going with 1GB because 256MB just will not do.

What about update to Tiger will it be better to do clean install being use to Windows it was better to do a cleam install.

Your best bet would be to do a clean install of more RAM, then consider Tiger. If you upgrade any Mac with 256MB RAM to Tiger it will seem very slow.

No modern computers should be running 256Mb with the multitasking most people do. I recommend a minimum of 1Gb for the Mini for people who consider themselves power-users. I don't think 512Mb would work for what I do, of course running an external or an upgraded hard drive should lessen the effect of having only 512 a little.
