Im going to get the new 24" 2.8 Ghz imac. I was wondering if the recent problems with the system is due to the hardware or the OS Leopard. Should i just get the imac with the older OS tiger instead or should i get an entirely differnt setup (mac pro for example)??

What sort of problems are you talking about, because as far as most people are concerned, Leopard has been great.

I've had Leopard since the day it was released and never had a problem with freezing...

I love Leopard! It runs great and looks beautiful!

Sounds like a problem with your computer, not the OS itself.

Or perhaps PEBKAC.

As mentioned if something is freezing your computer, it is unlikely the OS. Get Leopard, works great, and the features kick!!

/agree with the above posters. Most issues appear to be unsupported software and peripherals that have never been updated. Not replaced mind you but firmware updates so they operate with newer technology.

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

There are two types of IT problems in the world. PEBKAC and ID 10 T's.

I've upgraded to Leopard, and so far, none problem at all!

In fact, my mbp is running smoother than with tiger. Faster!

I'm loving it!

If you believe you can do something, you can.
If you don't think you can do it, you can't.
Either way, you're right!

From my experience, all my softwares works great in Leopard, just as they did in Tiger.

Leopard is a little faster, and Spotlight is quicker at finding things.

Leopard looks beautiful, where Tiger looks good.

Bottom line, Leopard for me!
