Will Max/MSP 4.5.7 Runtime work fine on Intel Mac mini ?

    Hello Does anyone run Max/MSP 4.5.7 Runtime on a Intel Mac? I'll buy a Intel Mac mini to run my Installation Program. So, will it work fine ? (Just Runtime, Not mxb file.) Thanks~

      Why not using the 4.6beta ? which is MacTel compatible...

      Thanks, EJ. But my computer is Powerbook G4, not a intel mac yet. I'll buy a intel mac mini to run my artwork for the exhibition. Some objects and plug-ins that I used still not support 4.6 beta. So I'm curious about will 4.5.7 runtime can work fine on MacTel. Or I should buy a second hand mac mini G4.

      Ok, it seems that 4.5.7 was running "fine" under MacTel except for mxj. But the performances are not that great. Look at the archive you'll find more informations about the performances.

      as long as you're not doing too much processing it should run fine. ive used the intel minis with installations running apps built in 4.5 without a problem. these usualy involve some low rez movie playback and network operations.
      see if you can load your stuff onto one first and test it.

      That would make sense: the Java will be native Intel, and Rosetta won't translate the JNI calls to/from MXJ.

      Ok, I'll search some topic about the performance.

      That's sounds good, I'll do some tests on intel mac mini first.
