    If I were you I would deifinitely upgrade. I've been using a mac for about 3 years now and have updated OS each time. I also highly reccomend parallels desktop for mac. This way you will be able to run windows alongside the mac and run bberry desktop manager which is a thousand times better than pocketmac.

    Snow Leopard will be out fairly shortly, if you have an intel mac. Otherwise you won't have the option of going any higher than 10.5 so no point in waiting

    It is well worth the full price in my opinion. So go for the $129 or what ever. But if you are looking for iLife and iWork also you may want to look at this package.

    I have an Intel core 2 Duo 2.4.
    I am using Fusion to run my Windows. With Fusion you can run both operating systems at the same time. Windows will run as a Virtual Machine. It's a very cool program.

    Really what's illegal?
    Me posting that or the act of d/l it and saving 100 bucks?
    I for the record have the family pack for all 5 of my macs.

    And you purchased EVERY one of your MP3's too right?

    If you're on Panther right now, you're probably still running a pre-Intel Mac, so Bootcamp and dualbooting Windows isn't an option. Not sure if VMwareFusion or Parallels run on the G4/G5 configuration.

    Definitely update to Leopard. I'd go with Apple's bundle, which includes Leopard, iWork, and iLife for little more than the price I paid for Leopard when it first came out.

    I inherited a "Quicksilver" Power Mac G4 with a 22" monitor. Is this an Intel-based Mac? I'm not home to post the specs but I was just reading the requirements for Leopard, ILife, & IMovie.

    (Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor. iMovie requires an Intel-based Mac, Power Mac G5 (dual 2.0GHz or faster), or iMac G5 (1.9GHz or faster). GarageBand Learn to Play requires an Intel-based Mac with a dual-core processor or better.)

    If you have a quicksilver, you definitely only have a G4, which is a PowerPC processor. Leopard is worth the upgrade; whether the iLife and iWork is worth it for you depends on what you want to use it for. You can count iMovie out since you're not Intel. Garageband will have limited functionality. iPhoto is gonna lag once you get some photos in there. iWork is unnecessary unless you need it for work, imho. I have it and LOVE Keynote; but I'm a professor and use that kind of thing for presentations pretty regularly.

    I'd probably just go for the ebay copy. If you're affiliated with a college campus, go check out their bookstore or computer store. I feel like the higher ed discount takes it down to $70.

    PS, if your quicksilver has less than 1.5GB of RAM, max that puppy out (to 1.5, which I believe is all it can take).

    Hi

    I'm thinking of a blackberry storm, in fact i just put a bid on ebay for one. This one is locked and I have a vodafone SIM anyway.

    However if I dont win this one I have seen another which already comes 'unlocked' and I wondered if unlocked blackberries have the same issues as unlocked iPhones? (locking again after connecting to iTunes or trying to update software?)

    Also I'm running OS X 10.5.6. It is an intel iMac but I prefer not to put Windows on it, if at all possible. Will I get the software to connect it to Mac with the phone or do I have to download it separately from somewhere else?

    Thanks

    For syncing, U will need Pocket Mac or Missing Sync (3rd party programs) or Windows on Ur Mac.

    ITunes only works for iPhones/Touches- not BlackBerries.

    Yep, you can definitely upgrade to Leopard on your machine. Just be sure that you get the UNIVERSAL version, as that will support both G4/G5 and Intel.

    Anything "G" is pre-intel.
