    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 2.33GHz, 3GB RAM, 250GB HDD, OS X Leopard
    Updating to Leopard?
    Supposing I purchase a Macbook soon and it has Tiger installed on it. Few months later, Leopard is released. Will I be able to update to Leopard using that same Macbook (2.0 GHZ White) or will I have to buy a new laptop (I hope not though).

    Yes, you can purchase the new OS at any time after its release and install it on your current MacBook. There would be no need to purchase a new machine.

    tons of people have to go out and upgrade/buy new computers to run vista. Mac's are just not like that.. as DB said you will just have to buy Leopard and install it.. very simple, very quick!

    Are there any concerns with only having 64Mb of shared video RAM?
