    Default Hardware advice - will this take Leopard?

    I'm speccing my new laptop as a replacement for my ageing and slowly dying G4 Mini

    I'm a lifelong mac user and graphic designer and need something with a bit of oomph... on a budget. Will this setup take Leopard ok?

    Thanks in advance for any comments you guys may have!

    Thanks!

    It is a custom build from pcspecialist.co.uk

    I plan to upgrade to 4gb RAM, faster HD when I have more money! ;o) But this spec will do for now.

    I would try, but I haven't bought it yet - I don't want to buy it if there's a good chance it won't work!
