Hi guys

Im getting a Powermac G4 off of a friend in about 2 weeks and i was wondering if it is possible to run iLife 09 on it.
If not, do I have to buy more ram, Mhz, HD space etc. to make it work?

Thanks in advance

Sorry...my mind reading skills are not so good today!

You need to tell us how much ram, what size hard drive, and what the processor speed is of your Powermac G4 before we can answer this question.

Thanks,

Here's what our "friend" Google says:

Apple - iLife - System requirements for iLife on the Mac.

You NEED a Powermac G4 with at least an 867mhz processor...because you NEED to be running a minimum of OS 10.5.6. And even if you meet these requirements...not all of iLife 09 will run...such as Garageband.

You also need at least 512meg of ram (1 gig recommended)...and a DVD drive for the install.

If your soon to be Powermac G4 doesn't meet these requirements...do you absolutely need iLife 09? Maybe you could use an older version of iLife.

Hope this helps,

- Nick

p.s. If the Powermac G4 has at least an 867mhz cpu...it is VERY possible that it is not running OS 10.5. If this is true...then it's going to cost you $100 plus to get an install disk of OS 10.5.

No problem. Update us when you get that Powermac G4...so we can see where things stand.
