Although iLife ’09 made moves away from full PowerPC-based Mac compatibility, the new iLife ’11 release eschews PowerPC support altogether in favor of only Intel-based Macs. Apple’s system requirements for the new release include “Mac computer with an Intel processor.”
Other requirements include:
- GarageBand Learn to Play requires a Mac with an Intel Core Duo processor or better.
- AVCHD video from supported video cameras requires a Mac with an Intel Core Duo processor or better. Visit the iMovie ’11 Supported Cameras page for additional details.
- 1GB of RAM.
- Approximately 5GB of available disk space.
