So, like the title says. I have one the dual 1GHZ 2mb L3 Cache power pc's macs. i was wondering what the latest OS update is I can get for it, and where to find it?

Currently it is running

and it only has 1.5GB of ram. is that enough?

sorry, i know nothing about apple. i know Microsoft, he pays my bills. lol

anyway, got this pc for free. wanted to learn more about it.

OSX 10.5 Leopard is the highest you can go. You can find them on ebay, and amazon. You should probably upgrade the ram to your potential limit.

It will have to be as 3x512MB memory modules is it for your model.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
