08-29-2004, 01:08 PM #1plankGuestSuitable mac specs for a newbie...?
I am wanting to get a mac for my room that will run garageband and safari and occasionally photoshop. What would be suitable specs required for a machine to run these applications comfortably? I was thinking along the lines of a 400-500 g3? With at least 256mb ram?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For Garageband you would want more like G4 1ghz and more like 512 RAM

I've got a friend with an eMac, 256MB RAM - he says GarageBand and iMovie have problems sometimes, he's upgrading his RAM soonish. I'll tell you when he gets it and how much difference it makes.

yes, anything lower than 512MB of ram could be a problem when running those apps.

My iMac, 800 mhz, 768 RAM runs Garage band fine.

And don't forget that you need a DVD-Drive in order to install it!
