What OS is currently loaded on it?

- If it already has Tiger on it...are you willing to spend $100+ to purchase 10.5 Leopard.
- Your decision may also depend on what programs you're interested in using. Some programs or versions of programs may require OS 10.5.
- OS 10.5 has some features 10.4 "Tiger" doesn't have...such as the backup program "Time Machine".
