    Picked up mint conditions 2008 iMac, rocking Tiger!
    Just picked up a mint condition 2008 iMac, running Tiger. This is my first exposure to Tiger, but I personally like the layout. Now, when I tried going to Facebook, needless to say the old flash and java would not even download the page completely. I guess keeping Tiger will be out of the question. A shame, the design is so cool.

    Are you sure it's Tiger? If it's OS X 10.5.x, you can check by click on the Apple logo on the top left and About this Mac, it's actually Leopard. You need up to upgrade to Snow Leopard minimally to be able to use any recent app..

    Yes, it is Tiger. I will order Snow Leopard on Amazon here very soon. Once I max out the RAM, I will then download and install Mavericks. Thanks.
