    Leopard - Do I have enough???
    Here are the specs for my Quicksilver:

    Machine Name: Power Mac G4
    Machine Model: PowerMac3,5
    CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (2.1)
    Number Of CPUs: 2
    CPU Speed: 1 GHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 256 KB
    L3 Cache (per CPU): 2 MB
    Memory: 1.5 GB
    Bus Speed: 133 MHz

    Do you think I have enough to run Leopard? Thinking about upgrading for Christmas but do not want to bother if I am just going to have problems with system sluggishness.

    Yes, absolutely, this system should run Leopard just fine.

    Graphics Processing Unit.

    It's the power of the graphics chip in the machine.
