  I tested IDEA 3 and it ran great on my G3 600MHZ (640Mb RAM) with Jaguar.
  Last week, I checked IDEA 4 with Panther on the same machine... It ran
great but, a little bit slower than the previous version but good enough,
even with Tomcat running (ant builds are the only problem).

  I only used Eclipse M2 on my mac so... It has been a while :) to make a
good comparison.

  On both cases it is better to have a lot of RAM.

  I find IDEA a better option to use as a development environment (it is
what I use at work but I prefered the old IDEA 3.0.4 version).
