I need download a printer driver to my desk top and can't find one for as old of an operating system as I have (OSX 10.4.11).  Can I find such a driver somewhere?  Or do I need to upgrade my operating system?  If so, how?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Have you checked with its manufacturer?


    If you want to upgrade OS X the easiest and least expensive option would be to purchase Snow Leopard from Apple. The intervening OS X release, Leopard, is no longer available from Apple and is unreasonably expensive from aftermarket sources.


    To purchase Snow Leopard online:


    (US) http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard

    (UK) http://store.apple.com/uk/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard


    Elsewhere: call the phone number in the Apple Online Store


    Apple's price is $19.99 or £14.00. It is not available to download from any legitimate source.


    Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" System Requirements


    • An Intel processor
    • An internal or external DVD drive, or DVD or CD Sharing
    • At least 1 GB of memory (RAM) (additional RAM is recommended)
    • A built-in display or a display connected to an Apple-supplied video card supported by your computer
    • At least 5 GB of disk space available, or 7 GB of disk space if you install the developer tools


    After you install Snow Leopard you can decide if you want to upgrade OS X to the latest version, Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion is available in the Mac App Store, which is available to you after upgrading to Snow Leopard.
