    Specs:
    15" PB 1.5, 512 ram, superdrive, one sexy computer!
    ibook clamshell and mac os panther
    My friend has a blueberry ibook clamshell. It says panther can run on it. (it has 300 mghz). But I wonder if panther runs fine on it. I mean I am using a pb 1.5 and panthers great. But I don't see how it could run on that since its so old. Shes upgrading the hard drive to 60 gb from the 5.

    Thanks

    Panther will indeed run fine on the Clamshell. As long as you have realistic expectations of how the machine will perform, you and your friend should be quite happy with it. It obviously isn't going to be blazingly fast, but it will be perfectly useable.

    Welcome to the world of Macintosh, and systems that actually have a reasonable useful life span with even the newest OS's.
    One of my main everyday computers is a Power Macintosh AIO built in 1998, and even though it's 7 years old, it's happily running Panther 10.3.9.

    Ive seen clamshell ibooks running panther, it usually gives the ibook new life, also depends on ram, BTW, minimum ram for panther is 128.

    My clamshell runs panther fine. I do have 320mb ram, which helps. It's no speed demon, but it works just fine!!!
