Acer Aspire 5720 laptop

Been trying for a week now to install Leopard or Tiger to Acer Aspire 5720. Kalyway gives me restart-loop, Leo4All won't install saying he can't find data, and some 10.4.11 distro gives me black screen after booting... I'm now downloading iAtkos, but I guess there are some things I should know before trying again.


So here is the hardware config (not the same among all 5720's!):

CPU -- Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 @ 2.2 GHz SSE3 supported

Chipset -- Intel PM965/GM965/GL960 Crestline

Southbridge -- 82801HEM (ICH8M-E)

Gfx -- ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600

Network -- Broadcom Netlink BCM5787M gigabit ethernet

-- Intel Wireless 3945ABG

Firewire & Card-reader -- Ricoh


What is important to me that I have responsive, stable and fast system because I'll be using it with audio programs for DJing like Traktor...


I'm very dissapointed with Windows XP installation which I tweaked to the maximum, I just can't get satisfying performance. Latency is too high, there are clicks and pops when loading a song, etc etc... Really trying hard to give it a shot with OS X, please help. :tomato:
