10.4.5

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded 10.4.5 and I loved it before I got it. First the size was nice and small perfect for my Dial-up speed poached Wi-Fi signal. Once I rebooted it I noticed a notable performance increase. First Safari took 1 bounce to open. Widgets jumped right onto my screen. MarbleBlastGold was nice and smooth. The next thing that I noticed was that my battery life went up a lot. Before it was at 1.5 hours (with Wi-Fi off) not it is at over 4 hours with Wi-Fi on. Speaking of Wi-Fi my PowerBook seems to keep hold of a signal better than it did with 10.4.4. Last the thing no longer burns my legs when I put it on my lap. It runs nice and cool now. All of these things mean 1 thing. I don't have to save up money for a RAM upgrade! I am running on a PowerBook G4, 15 inch with a Dual layer DVD burner. It has 512 MB of DDR-2 RAM. Also there is no more stuttering. Hooray!

I would give it **********/***** and I know that is an improper fraction, it is just that good. I would recommend that everybody with Tiger get this.

i have a 12' powerbook and since upgrading to 10.4 the fan goes non-stop and it still got ridiculously hot, since 10.4.5 the fan doesn't go unless i'm really stressing it and the temperture is back to normal.

 

as for speed i haven't noticed much of a difference, but then again i never was anal enough to count the number of bounces on launch
