I currently own a Mac with version 10.4.11 and have bought Ibank4 not knowing that it doesn't run on this mac. What software do i need in order to run Ibank4 on my machine?


Any responses appreciated as i need to get it installed on this machine asap.





iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    iBank 4 requires an Intel Mac running Snow Leopard or later. You cannot run it on a PPC Mac. You don't need software. You need a new Mac. Or look for similar software that will work on a PPC Mac running Tiger 10.4.x or Leopard 10.5.x.

    My system details are:


      Model Name:          iMac

      Model Identifier:          iMac5,1

      Processor Name:          Intel Core 2 Duo

      Processor Speed:          2 GHz

      Number Of Processors:          1

      Total Number Of Cores:          2

      L2 Cache (per processor):          4 MB

      Memory:          1 GB

      Bus Speed:          667 MHz



    So from the details above, if i was to purchase Leopard 10.5.x it should be able to run?

    You should never include unit serial number or personal info (address, e-mail address, etc) in these world-viewable posts.


    Yes, you have Intel Mac.

    The next time please post in the proper forum. You put this in the PPC forum instead of the Intel. You have an Intel Mac, not a PPC one which completely mislead me.


    You can indeed upgrade to Snow Leopard:


    Upgrading to Snow Leopard


    You must purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.


    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.


         Snow Leopard General Requirements


           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor

           2. 1GB of memory

           3. 5GB of available disk space

           4. DVD drive for installation

           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;

               fees may apply.

           6. Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and

               terms apply.

    Might I suggest you put more RAM into your computer.


    Maximum Memory3.0 GB (4.0 GB can be installed, only 3.0 GB will be addressed)
    Memory Slots2 - 200-pin PC2-5300 (667MHz) DDR2 SO-DIMM


    You have 1 GB which is sufficient for Snow Leopard but is the bare minimum.
