    Yes Leopard will run well on this laptop, but like you say a 1gb RAM module will vastly improve performance. You need DDR PC2100 or PC2700.

    As for apps I would search around here or check the downloads at, there is lots of free stuff available.

    Hope this helps,

    thanks a bunch i just noticed with tiger there is a bit of hanging in some spots when itunes is running and firefox but i guess more ram would help that so i guess i need to just go ahead and buy a 1gig chip

    also one last question i seen on ebay a 160gig hdd for ibook g4's is that the biggest you can go to? cause i would probably upgrade to 160gig when i go to Leopard cause 60gig is filling up fast with music/video/pictures =]
