Depends on what operating system you want to buy. Snow Leopard will only install on Intel machines, Lion on Core 2 Duo, and Leopard on machines, including G4 and G5's with an 867MHz processor or faster. Apple sells Lion and Snow Leopard on Lion, Leopard will be a search of auction sites such as eBay.

If you go this way make sure you purchase a full retail install DVD which is black coloured, and not a silver/grey disc which are extremely model specific. If the machine boots, go into 'About this Mac' under the Apple icon in the menu bar and it will say OS X and then the version number.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
