    i dunno if mine will be able to plus my comp was WAY lagged down


    if your comp still feels fresh, wait til 10.5, but if you have something like i got, i say go for it because it MIGHT run 10.5 like poopoo

    I've got a black macbook w/ 2gigs of ram :o

    I'm just wondering because the HD holds something like 80gigs, and when I got it, 30 or so gigs were used, so maybe i need to get rid of whatever junk they had on here :dunno:

    that is exactly why i reinstalled. i cut the install down to 15gb. and thats keeping the entire iLife package. if you don't install all of those you can rly save some space. definitely dont install all the languages and only install the printer drivers you need.

    I swapped the HDD in my BlackBook to a 120GB and did a clean install. I've got well in excess of 100GB available. Its a great feeling. :big grin:
