    I'd say it's probably not worth it. You can only run 10.5.8 and 10.7.2 is out. It's only a matter of time before 10.7 is supplanted. Always invest in hardware that will run the most recent OS to insure the longest possible useful life of same. I'm looking at the long term cost, not short term.

    Not worth it. Can only upgrade the hard drive and memory to 1GB. Invest in a newer faster computer.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
