    iMac G4 10.3.9 to 10.5.x
    Hey, just wondering. I've looked around for ages looking for ways to change my OSX from 10.3.9 to the better and brighter 10.5.x

    Just wondering, is it actually possible without having to buy new computer parts (HD etc). A lot of websites have been doubting this motion but I would really love to run 10.5.x on my iMac

    Stats:
    Processor: 1.25 GHz PowerPC
    Memory: 512 MB DDR SDRAM

    Thanks.

    Specs:
    17 inch 2 GHz C2D imac (5,1) with 3GB DDR2 RAM, X1600 (128MB memory) GPU - OSX 10.6.3
    Technically your computer should run 10.5 just fine. But your ram amount is quite borderline. I'd upgrade that to 2GB. Then it should run ok I think.

    Agree with the8thark, one additional thing: how much space is available on your hard drive?

    Do you have a DVD drive?

    If so, just buy a copy of Leopard and you're good to go. Your machine is fine (although a gig of RAM would make things a bit better)
