I'm using an Intel iMac running OS 10.4.11. Obviously the computer is a few years old now and I'm wondering whether it is worth upgrading the system software or time to get a new computer. Can you guys venture any opinions as to which version of OS X I might be able to upgrade to with decent performance? I'd rather not add any memory if that's a requirement for upgrading - in that case I'd probably just opt for a new computer.
Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1.83 GHz Core Duo 1GB 667 Mhz RAM
In order to install Windows 7 via bootcamp, do you have to use the full version of windows or can you use the upgrade disc to install? I figured I should ask before buying another license as I have an upgrade version of Windows 7 Pro that I don't use. I do own previous versions of Windows (all of them....just like I do Mac OS).

My son deleted the mail application. Tried to to re-install it from download version. Get error message: You have mail version 4.3 (1081/1084). Cannot be used with Mac O/S version 10.6.8. build 10K549.
I am currently running version 10.7.4 from what I read and what I was able to make out from my serial number I wont be able to upgrade from Lion to Mountain Lion as it says my imac is a late 2006 model.I am just curious if I am able to run Lion why Apple isnt supporting the older models that can? Seems odd to me and it is not in my budget to buy a new mac and my current one is running perfectly. I'm not sure how much I will miss out not having Mountain Lion.
I have a late 2006 imac5,1 Intel Core 2 Duo with 3g of ram. Can I upgrade to Lion without issue? I know that some features like gestures will not work but wanted to know if I could run icloud and other apps so that I can synch my iphone 4s.
When downloading the new version to upgrade an old one, is the new one installed on top of the old version, or is it just upgraded? Simply put, should I delete the old version and then install the new, or is this unnecessary? Hard drive space is at a premium, which is why I ask.
New Imacs are great but lack a Esata port or Express card port, 800 FireWire port is too slow compared to Esata. I am willing to upgrade my macbookpro bus 800 only if a new quad version appears. Any news from all the well informed guys?
I currently have Mac OS X 10.3.9 running on a Power Mac G5. I desperately need to get Final Cut Pro 6 installed on this machine, but it won't install unless I upgrade, so I need to know how to upgrade to the highest version I can run on the Power Mac G5. Does Apple have that upgrade online to purchase?
So, my 5 year old iMac's become outdated bec. I have Tiger and OSX 10.4.11.Mac's moving my email to "the cloud" and I cannot upgrade to Lion, which is required. Is buying a new computer my only option? Or, can this machine be manually upgraded with new parts?
I have a 2009 imac running intel core duo 2.66ghz processor, 4gb ram and 256mb graphics. It currently runs os x 10.5.8 and I wish to upgrade it to the latest operating system (lion?) I recently purchased a macbook pro 3 inch running lion. A friend told me I'd be able to upgrade my imac too as 'apple doesn't charge people twice.'
1) Is this true? and if so, how do I obtain the free upgrade? 2) should I wait until mountain lion is available? 3) Is the computer going to be capable of running the latest OS or will it need a ram upgrade?
