Solved Software 10.4.11 and bought Leopard 10.5.

Specs: mac Os X 10.4.11

I bought a software 10.5 to install in my Mac Book. My software is at the moment a 10.4.11. The problem is that this upgrade disc needs minimum memory 512 MB and more than 800 MHz. The actual memory is 512 MB, but the MHz is only 667.

Some confusion here. As far as I am aware, Apple do not specify a minimum memory speed for Leopard, just a minimum processor speed of 867 MHz. Your computer should run Leopard without problem, although I would recommend upgrading the memory to the maximum your computer will take.

Don't buy the memory from Apple; they charge about 8 times as much as other suppliers. Go to Kimgston or Crucial who will sell you the required memory for less than $50. (That would be for 8GB; you need to check the maximum your computer can take. The Crucial web site will tell you this.)

I'm afraid that you would be very disappointed with the performance of Leopard on your computer. I installed it on a Mac Mini with 512 MB and a 1.4 GHz G4 processor and eventually uninstalled it because it was so slow.

My processor is 1.83 GHZ intel Core 2 Duo and it's not a G4. The problem is with the MHz that is 667 and is needed about 860

Is this an Retail Upgrade DVD or a Retail DVD or a Model Specific DVD ?

Macbook is a range of Apple Laptops, could you divulge the Model ?

The 667 and 800 usually refer to memory Speed.......

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....
