About Leopard..

by kafeepot / March 2, 2007 3:25 AM PST

Hello all,

I got a MBP C2D in Jan. Hoping aginst hope that Leppard would get released..but am still waiting.

My question is would there be special requirements for instaling Leopard onto the MBPC2D?---something along the lines of requirements of installing Vista for the PC people.

I was looking at the sneak peek of leopard on the aple website and it said that leopard is for 64-bit.

I was wondering what it is?..in layman's terms.

Thanks much

K

As far as I know, u wont have the major upgrade problems that Vistaers face. Currently, Mac OSX 4.8 Tiger can work on a 7 year old computer. So there should be no problems with Leopard on ur MB. Em64T is a set of instructions (something like that) on your processor which allows 64 bit processing. With that you can work with 64 and 32 bit apps easily at once with no probz.

When Leopard is released it will run like a champ on your machine.
Mac OS X has been 64 bit capable for a while, the G5 was 64bit, and when Leopard is released, the installer will put the correct version for your processor onto the HD.

You should have no problems

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
