    iMac G5 (powerPC) 2ghz, 2GB ram, OS question
    Bless.
    I currently have an iMac g5 (specs in title). It's running Tiger 10.4.11. I have a boxed version of Leopard 10.5 that I am going to install. I want to know will it run? Also I need to know what is the highest Mac OS I can run on it and the best way to obtain it.
    Thank you

    Specs:
    15-inch MacBook Pro
    Leopard specs are listed here:

    Mac OS X 10.5 - Technical Specifications

    Here are the specs for Snow Leopard:

    Apple - Mac OS X Snow Leopard - Technical specifications

    I am guessing you could load Leopard and update it, but couldn't go any farther. I am sure someone will chime in if I am wrong.

    I'm running 10.5 on a dual 1.8ghz with 5gigs of ram and it runs great. I run Lightroom 2 and CS3 and while it's not exactly a speed demon it's still a productive machine.

    Yes OS X.5.8. Just install Leopard and download the combo updater and run that for the very best results:-

    Leopard will run very nicely with the 2GB memory.
