- OS 10.5.8 is the newest OS version it can run (which it is already running)

And since this is a 2005 has a PPC G4 cpu...not an Intel cpu (which would be much better).

Finally...I've actually purchased one of these about 2 years ago for $50 bucks (but $90-$100 is probably closer to it's actual value.

p.s. Regarding the 256gig SSD. You could probably install one (this Mac-mini has an ATA/IDE drive not SATA)...but would you really want to install a $250 SSD into a $100 computer??

Thanks so much for the info!! I found somebody that has an older pc tower that still has a RAM card and HD in it, so I'll probably just salvage those and use them until I have saved up enough money to buy a newer model.

Thank you so much for all of your help!
