10.6 and upgrade your memory to at least 2 GB.

10.6 dies at the end of april just to let you know apple announced it just a few days ago that support for 10.6 will be ending at the end of april at the same time as windows xp

this is why people are off loading core 2 duo macintoshes right now

so be carefull on craigslist and on ebay unless you dont mind a dead o.s

What happens when your o.s dies??

Death of a mac o.s is not the same as a windows os you can still access the web for a short time and even enjoy your programs on the machine what it means is adobe flash player will no longer update and block you from using facebook and youtube

My two MMs run 10.5.8 and I don't seem to have problems using facebook or YouTube.
