we have to find out what type of iMac you actually have.
Go to the Apple menu > About this Mac and in the resulting window, click More info.
This brings up the system profiler. It contains everything we need to know about your mack.
The first page you see will be the hardware page. In the right hand section of the window, you will see a bunch of information. Third line down from the top is Processor Name.
If it says Intel something, then updating to 10.6 is an option
if it says G4 or G5 or PPC, then 10.6 is not an option.
So, tell us what it says for
word is i need to upgrade my imac which is running osx 10.4.11 to a minimum of 10.6.2 but this may mean that it doesn?t support PowerPC based machines,now i may sound as though i know what i am talking about but i can confirm that i don't! this is what a mate told me over the phone, can anyone tell me what the hell i've got to do?? except buy another mac i hope!
