Here's what I bought in 2003:

Apple iMac, G4, 800MHz, SD RAM 1 GB, 80 GB HD, CD-RW/DVD-R superdrive, OSX 10.2.6
Apple Pro speakers
Belkin 4 port hub
Floppy drive (for my Sony Mavica camera)
Epson C42UX (printer for photos - it's a cheapie, but it was free)
HP DeskJet 5550 Ink Jet Printer
Epson Perfection 1660 Photo Scanner (can do slides and negatives too)
Norton System Works (lots of utilities)
Microsoft Office X (word processing, spreadsheet, email, powerpoint, and MSN messenger)

I'm still running with OX 10.2.6, because it works with all the freeware I've added on.

OK, now I'm feeling it's time to upgrade the software. My question is: Can I put OS 10.4.7 on this computer? Is there enough room? I'm thinking of spending about $500 to get an external HD (for backup), Roxio, Disk Warrior, and OS 10.4.7

Do you think I can do this with the iMac I have? And do I really need Disk Warrior?

yes you can upgrade,...

Disk Warrior, in my opinion is hardly usable. Norton is twice as useless and in the end, very mac unfriendly.
