I have a 2005 Powerbook G4, PowerPC, version 10.5.8. I want to know if I can get an Intel (or other) processor to replace the old Power PC, and with that, install the current OS, which I think is now Mountain Lion. In othe words, I want to avail myself of the latest software innovations, and am willing to cobble together the hardware to make that happen, within reason. I like the physical design and architecture of the old G4 and am reluctant to part ways with it. Is this at all possible/practical,, or just too much $$ and hassle? I'm an old school guy who is happy luggin' around an older 'heavy' PC andf can do without tablets asnd such.
It's not possible.
