    Anyone have any issues?

    I just installed it on my G4 1.67ghz. On of my memory slots is bad, so I only have 512 megs. Tiger ran great, but I'm getting some lag with Leopard. When I click buttons I get a delay, sometimes I have to click them twice. Tapping the touchpad is slow to respond, sometimes I have to do it twice. Windows and the dock are a little choppy when moving around.

    I'm hoping this is just cause I have 512 megs. Anyone else having these issues?

    Nice to see it seems to run fine for most of you on G4s. I'll be putting Leopard Server on my 1GHz G4 tower (400MHz AGP with 1GHz upgrade card) with 1GB RAM soon. Waiting for my new MacBook Pro and Mac Pro to show up before I upgrade everything.

    Runs fine. Only if it's installing an update or something it freezes for a minute or two. Other than that, it feels a bit faster.
