    Tiger VS Leopard
    Here is my question i just bought a used mac off of craigslist two days ago and i just got done upgrading it as much as i could
    the specs are as followed
    G4 1.33 GHz
    1.5 GB Ram
    80 GB HDD

    now the question is is to which OS X should I load

    Tiger or Leopard
    I will mainly be using it for web surfing word processing possibly some light gaming "starcraft brood war"

    also this is my first mac

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    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".
