Updated Leopard requirements to exclude 800MHz systems - Page 3

post #81 of 83
Apple's stated support lifetime for their products is five years. Since some Macs running at 800 MHz were first manufactured less than five years ago this October, it seems Apple will be doing something they don't usually do (when was the last time that happened?? . (that's not a pimple, it's a period)

This is the quandry isn't it? Theoretically a dual 450 should work. So I wonder if the install DVD will look for the total of any dual core processor Macs before it rejects those with more than HALF of 867 MHz alone.

Does anyone know what's the story on all those dual processor G4s out there that total 900 MHz and more?

I just happen to have an 867 MHz G4 that I still use. Anything less is too outdated. Although I am planning on buying a New Mac Pro after leopard if they have done some improvement to their graphics options, but I am going to bag the 867 in the garage for storage. Or I'm buying a PC. Depends on Apple.
