My Dad has an original Mini (I probably got him the cheapest there was at the time). It's running Panther with 513MB RAM.

I'm planning on upgrading him to Leopard:

a. would more RAM speed things up
b. Will the original Mini run Leopard ok
c. Will it run/seem slower or faster...

Any information / experiences gratefully received ...

I have the same Mini that your Dad has and I'm running Leopard on it.

a. would more RAM speed things up

Absolutely.


b. Will the original Mini run Leopard ok

Yes, but some things will run slowly. Restoring files from Time Machine, for example, is painfully slow with the machine your Dad has. On the other hand, I upgraded from Tiger on the Mini and it runs faster with Leopard than it did with Tiger so the same may be true with an upgrade from Panther.

Most ordinary tasks work well, but multi-tasking can be slow. Increasing the RAM might eliminate many of the slow-downs.

Claire

Hi Claire - thanks for the reply.
The RAM is ordered, I've bought a copy of Leopard for it (teh Apple Store in London's Regent St was pretty crazy, as you can imagine, but they seemed to be handling the rush pretty well) and I'm going to do this over the Christmas break - as soon as we're back from the Moth-in-Law's...

Looking forward to it, sadly Wink
