    Specs:
    Mac Pro 2.66GHz Quad, 1GB RAM
    ibook for basic tasks
    I just put a bid in for a Ibook G3 with 640 MB of RAM and 600 mhz. Will this run tiger well? All I plan on using it for is Safari, MS Office and Adium. How well will it run those apps?

    Thank you,
    Robert

    It will run tiger but it will be a bit slow.. it should work fine for safari, MS and adium.

    it will run those apps fine... certain things in tiger like dashboard and graphics-intensive stuff will be a bit slow....safari really depends on ur router and ur aiport card though.

    if i were you i would just get a first gen ibook g4. it wouldn't be too much more and you would have speedier ports and connections, as well as a the ability to run OS 10.4 more smoothly.
