    it will work yes. my girlfriend had it running on her 12" 1.5ghz 512ram powerbook.

    it ran fine, didn't make much of a difference either way.

    if you are going to have the computer for a while i'd do it, if not don't waste your money.

    i got it on my 1ghz ibook g4 with 768mb ram. runs like a champ, faster than tiger. just do a clean install so you dont have all the old jive ass clutter hosing you up.

    as long as you have at least a gig of ram, speeds should be just fine
