Intel Mac :: Upgrade System Software On Older Version?

May 3, 2012

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.

Intel Mac :: Load An Older Version Of OSX Onto It?

May 12, 2012

I have a Mid-2011 iMac running 10.7 right now.I partitioned the boot drive, creating a new space so I could load up 10.6 (in an effort to be able to play my older Diablo II and Warcraft games) but my retail CD version is not working. I did some research, and found that this is because my hardware is incompatible with the oldest versions of 10.6. What I am confused about, when reading through threads, is how can I get around this? Is there a way I can load up a newer version of 10.6 (like 10.6.3 or newer) onto this partition? Do I need an older Mac to do this (right now both my laptop and iMac are running 10.7 but I could always borrow my Mom's laptop for a bit since she is running 10.6.x)?  Since I have a legal version of 10.6 I assume there is a way to do this, but I am not sure how to approach.

OS X :: Updating Safari With Older Version (1.3.2) On G4?

Dec 28, 2008

I'm running Safari 1.3.2 (v312.6) on a G4 with OS 10.3.9. Safari used to be great but seems to be slowly dying (e.g. can't move to next page on eBay, can't pay on eBay). I am having to use Firefox but don't like it. Is there anything I can do to resurrect my old mate (apart from lashing out on new hardware)?

OS X :: Installing Older Version Of Preview In SL Possible?

Oct 9, 2009

I have upgraded to 10.6.1 and am generally very pleased. The installation was flawless, including the update to 10.6.1. My one complaint is that Preview has lost some functionality. The range of color adjustments I had in 10.5.8 were so good I normally didn't need to use GIMP or other photo editing program.

Specifically, I could adjust the white and black levels as well as brightness and contrast. In Snow Leopard, they seem to have eliminated those two controls. Is it possible to somehow install the old version of Preview in SL? I have the original 10.5 CD, but haven't been able to find a way to only install Preview.

Hardware :: Finding Older Version Of Mac Keyboards?

Nov 26, 2008

I recently bought a new keyboard for my iMac after a beer spill damaged my old keyboard. I went to Best Buy and noticed that all that was available was the new, very thin model of the keyboard with no numeric keypad. I am finding myself making lots of typing errors on this keyboard. Apparently, key sizes are different and the arrangement of even the shift key is not identical to what it was before. Is there any way to buy the old-style keyboards? Or are they out of production now?

Applications :: BootCamp - Full Version Or Upgrade Version Of Windows 7?

Jun 17, 2010

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).

Apr 10, 2012

The App Store is showing that an update to Facetime is available, but the update is v 1.0.2 and the installed version is newer; 1.1.1.  When I click the update button I get a dialog that "FaceTime can't be installed on "Macintosh HD" becuase the version of Mac OS S is too new."  The App Store continues to show this update is available, how do I get rid of it?

Software :: Can't Get Older System 9 Computers To Talk?

Mar 12, 2010

We have a small ethernet network and need to bring files from projects done on older macs running OS9 into new macs running OSX. All machines can "see" the printers, and other machines running same OS, but we haven't been able to get them to talk to computers that are on different OS. The older machines are different laptops running the latest software they are capable of running - OS9.The newer machines are laptops and desktops running Tiger and Leopard.

Is there any way to get them to talk to one another? Saving to floppies or zipdrives and then burning to cds would be very tedious.

OS X :: Using Time Capsule To Access Internet For Older System?

Jan 18, 2010

I am the Principal of a school and because of budget cuts - scary piece ahead - also the tech coordinator. I have a few older eMacs, some with airport cards and some without. My question/problem: I want to hook an eMac 10.4.11 directly into the Time Capsule to access the internet (the time capsule is acting as an extension of our wireless network). I have done this before successfully using an airport extreme, however, I am not successful to date in doing this with time capsule. It has been a while since I set up a computer this way. My question is am I missing a trick (using ethernet cord into LAN port), or is it not possible.

MacBook :: Freeing Up Memory On An Older System With Time Capsule?

Aug 17, 2010

I purchased a 500GB time capsule awhile back in hopes of killing two birds with one stone. I wanted it to:1) serve as my wifi base (which it is doing very nicely)and 2) Allow me to backup all my files on my macbook in order to free up some memory.I guess my question really is, once I've backed up all my content to the time machine (acting as an extra hard drive), is it safe to just delete the content from my macbook that I am ok with not accessing when away from my time capsule? For example, all that music I still want to keep but dont necessarily listen to on a regular basis? I am completely full on my macbook and need extra room. I dont anticipate filling the time capsule anytime soon.

OS X Yosemite :: Contents Of Older Apple Mail Files Not Restored With System Restore

Dec 7, 2014

I recently did a Time Machine complete system restore and I noticed that the contents of some of the storage folders in Apple Mail were empty.  Interestingly, folders that have been accessed in the last few months were completely restored, but some much older files that have not been accessed in a considerable amount of time were totally empty.  I'm not sure why that occurred, but is there a way to find and restore the contests of those older folders?

Mac Pro :: Upgrade Video Card Vs Upgrade Entire System?

Jan 28, 2010

I am kicking around between upgrading video card in my 1st gen Mac Pro (2 x 2.66 dual core, 8gb ram) from 7300 Gt to ati 4870 vs. upgrading to a newer system altogether...

Newer MP has 2 x 2.66 quad cores, 12 gb ram with the 4870 card.) What kind of improved performance might I really expect or even notice when using photoshop, light video editing, 3d graphics.

I have not included costs because I want to focus on the performance boosts sans cost for the purpose of this discussion.
