Can I update my pre-Intel PowerBook G4 running OS X 10.4.11 so that I can use a modern version of iTunes to sync old files? I'm using an iPad 4 now but don't want to lose old files (not all from iTunes). Mt. Lion requires Intel processors and not what else to try or if I'm stuck.


Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Hi, the highest you can go is 10.5.8 ore-Intel, & I don't think that'll help with your iPad.

     

    Leopard requirements/10.5.x...

     

        *  Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor

     

    minimum system requirements

     

        * 512MB of memory (I say 1.5GB for PPC at least, 2-3GB minimum for IntelMacs)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * 9GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

    Classic/OS9 Apps no longer supported.

    Trouble is Apple no longer sells it, check eBay & such for the Retail version, not the Gray Discs...
