Hi Guys,

I have a Mac Mini G4.

Its currently on 10.3, but am upgrading it to Snow Leopard.

Can anyone tell me if once I have done this I will be able to run Paralells 6, and Windows XP?

Thanks
Neil

No, you can't. A G4 processor is a PPC processor and as such, you can not run either Snow Leopard or Parallels, both of which require an Intel processor.
