I am terribly content with DP4.12 on OSX.3.9 and an 896 interface. I got my 896 used for about 650. I believe DP 4.5 is really optimized for OSX.4+(Tiger). As I'm in no hurry to make the upgrade to Tiger and cloud my desktop with all sorts of things that I can't really use (especially since I'm on dial-up), I'll stick with 3.9 on my G4 1.25Ghz until I can afford to get a G5. After some struggle--mostly because I'm a deer in the headlights where MIDI is concerned--I've found DP to be quite handy with my testy old Roland XP-80.
I've upped my standards; now, up yours.
