Just for your information I use emacsformacosx port on Mac OS X 10.6.8,
currently GNU Emacs with 2GB RAM and 2.4GHz.

On larger org files (over 13000 lines) navigation slows considerably, but
I have never had Emacs crash, despite fairly heavy usage.

However, I tend to maintain fairly compact files, through archiving.
