I have been running SPM5 on a PC (Windows XP 2002) with MATLAB 7.0, but want to switch to a Mac. I have acquired a Mac OS X Version 10.4.11 with a 2 x 3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor and 8 GB 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM memory.
It is my understanding, from the MathWorks website, that versions of MATLAB released with R2006b (MATLAB 7.3) or earlier releases are not supported on Intel-based Macs. Also, the SPM website indicates that versions of MATLAB after 7.1 were written after the release of SPM5 and cannot predict how well it will run in these. Has anyone had success in running SPM5 on Intel-based Macs and what version(s) of MATLAB are you using?
Thanks for any help/suggestions,
