what's the best operating system that I can upgrade to
I currently have the mac os x 10.4 operating system and i want to upgrade to the newer operating system can you tell me what the best software that i can buy to upgrade to the current up to date mac os x?
The best you can buy for your computer is Leopard 10.5. Your machine will not run Snow Leopard. You need to max out your memory and purchase a Retail version of 10.5. I would buy it from Apple as they are still selling it for $129. Call the store and ask for it. Make sure they understand you have a PPC machine and want Leopard not Snow Leopard. Your macine has 512 MB installed and will take a 1GB stick to make a total of 1.5 GB. Ralph
Go with the 10.5 upgrade. Do a search on eBay for "10.5 & software & upgrade". This only works if you have 10.4 installed. Any version will do as the updates from Apple are free. You do lose the ability to run system 9 in Classic mode after going to 10.5.
The system requirements are:
Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard requires:
A Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or Power PC G4 (867 MHz or faster) processor
512 MB memory or more
A DVD drive for installation
9 GB of available disk space or more
