Is it worth it to upgrade to 10.4 or 10.5?
I got a hand-me-down G5 for free. I want to have it on hand for the kids to use for homework, etc., but don't really care if it has the latest gaming capabilities or any of that stuff. I would like to load iWork '08 onto it (I already have the iWork disks.)
Right now the G5 has 512 MB DDR SDRAM. I understand that I could upgrade to 2 gigs on this machine. I also understand that we'll need to buy the upgrade disks to go from OS 10.3 to either 10.4 or 10.5.
My question is: Is it worth it to pay to do these upgrades? Since the computer didn't cost me anything, I'd only be sinking in whatever it takes to update it. What do you think?
Is this a good question?
