In case you didn't know:
- OS 10.6 Snow Leopard was released August, 2009
- OS 10.7 Lion was released July, 2011
- OS 10.8 Mountain Lion was released July, 2012
And why would Apple stop updating the Mac OS back in 2009 (3.5 years ago) with the release of Snow Leopard?? That would be a pretty silly thing for a computer company to stop updating & improving their OS.
I'm not sure if you told us exactly what model iMac you have...but if you really really want/need to run Leopard (OS 10.5)...you could purchase a used Mac with the best specs possible that will still run OS 10.5 (Leopard). I'm guessing this computer would probably be faster than your current iMac (which of course if it's busted...won't be very hard).
You would probably be VERY surprised how inexpensively you could buy an older Mac capable of running Leopard.
Thus you could buy an older Mac to run Leopard (so you can run Pro Tools 8)...and still buy a new Mac-Mini...so you can run the latest version of iTunes so you can have better compatibility with your iPhone 5.
