Im not sure i anybody has done this yet, but I will be doing this for my sister later on today if not tomorrow. I hope it doesn't slow down her system. it's probably on the near minimum end of the requirements. I will let you all know how it goes.

If its an early iBook remember the hard disk will be comparatively small to more recent drives - is it worth loosing valuable memory space to a huge new Operating System?

But if its more than say 40GB then I'd definately go for it, let us know how it goes! Cool

Well a 60GB HDD isn't the biggest, but certianly worth a go! As long as there's plenty of RAM, I can't see any problems. Good luck with the installation when Leopard does arrive. We get the same problems here with ParcelForce!

I put it on my girlfriend's 1.2GHz 14" iBook and it runs fine. About the same as Tiger. 1.25GB RAM and 60GB HDD. I was amazed how smooth it ran. Haven't tried out Time Machine yet.

I installed it on my 12 inch 1.33ghz 1 gig ram iBook today, it runs very good.
I can't really say that it runs any faster, but it sure doesn't run any slower. I installed all the applications that I would use and I still have 29 gig left out of my 40 gig hard drive. All in all, I'm very happy with it. I love a lot of the new leopard features, but hate a few also, like the folder icons in the dock. I'm sure it is going to only get better.
