OS 10.5 "Leopard" was the last OS to have PPC code.
- 10.5 = Leopard
- 10.6 = Snow Leopard
- 10.7 = Lion
- 10.8 = Mountain Lion
Honestly...if you're going to get a new computer...all of the Snow Leopard/Lion concerns really don't matter...since the computer WILL come with Lion preinstalled.
There's nothing wrong with Lion...and there's also nothing "super-duper" about Snow Leopard.
If you REALLY want more information...please read these two articles:
Mac OS X Snow Leopard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mac OS X Lion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Awesome! Thanks guys, all of you really answered my questions quite nicely. And boy, I do appreciate it!
It's nice to know that Apple doesn't put back in useless features. I guess I won't have to worry about Apple deciding (for some crazy reason) to put a registry in Mac.
Many thanks again, my Macsters.
