Hi mackdon and Welcome to Apple Discussions,
What is the Highest Level of MAC OS X level for iMAC G4?
Well in general all the iMac G4s will run Tiger w/ the latest update so 10.4.11
If your machine is 1 GHz or above it will run Leopard w/ the latest update so 10.5.8.
Can I run Aperture iMAC G4?
Well the system reqs for Aperture 2 are:
" iMac with a 1.8GHz or faster"
There are rumors about it running on a iMac 1.25 Dunno.
I am told by a colleague that a G4 runs best on Tiger. I have Leopard installed on my G4 dual processor, and I find it gets slower. I'm not shure if I have to blame it on the OS or on the Apps (firefox, safari, mail etc) Can anybody tell if G4+Tiger is a BS story, or is there something to it?
Hi James and Volker,
I made a stupid mistake, I have Tiger (OS 10.5) running, and my colleague said that Leopard (OS 10.4) would make things run smoother. JUst visited the Apple store, and they mentioned that with 10.4 you can't run the latest versions of Safari or Firefox, with all the security penalties as a result.
Any thoughts on this? Or should I stay with Tiger and accept that the old G4 is running somewhat slower.
I am now officially an certified idiot. I have 10.5.8 running, and was told that 10.4 makes a G4 run smoother. I did notice that, however I blamed it on firefox, safari and mail. Also I noticed that pages and word take quite some time to start up.
My apologies for all the confusion. But before I consider reinstalling 10.4, I thought I'd pop the question on this forum.
Do you think it will make a difference, and what are your thoughts on security risks if it is true that with 10.4 you can't run the latest versions of Safari and Firefox?
