Hello

Would OSX 10.3 improve a iMac 350MHz 256mb RAM with 10.2.8. Did anybody noice any major speed increases or decreases?

would it need more than 128mb of RAM?

Every step in the development of OS X has brought improvements in many areas, including speed. However, on an older model the improvements are more limited. For some real-world comparisons between various systems on the same models try the Macs Only site: http://www.macsonly.com/olderspeed.html. As far as RAM goes: more is better. 128 is Apple's minimum but it is inadequate, 256 is better but (imho) if you want full performance for most uses you should have 512 or more.
QUOTE Thanks
