I recently purchased an older mini mac. (2005) with os x 10.3.7. I will be purchasing a new computer soon, And wanted to try out a mac. What upgrade do i need to purchase to be able to actually update, my web browser? I can't seem to do much with this old of an OS. Just looking for tips I realize its dated but still wanted to get a feel for how this OS runs. And it was cheap. Any help is much appreciated. I just have never used a mac before I been on windows forever and wanted to check out mac before i purchase a new computer.
Well, I'm still using Tiger/10.4.11 for most things, byt Tiger can cost an arm & a leg.
To use Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, your Macintosh needs:
* A PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor
* Built-in FireWire
* At least 256 MB of RAM (I recommend 1GB minimum)
* DVD drive (DVD-ROM), Combo (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) or SuperDrive (DVD-R) for installation
* At least 3 GB of free disk space; 4 GB if you install the XCode 2 Developer Tools (I recommend 20GB minimum)
