Hello all!

Will my 1.42 GHz Power PC G4 processor be able to handle Snow Leopard? I am thinking of upgrading from my older OS. If not, is there anything else you can suggest as I am interested in experimenting with Applications and when I tried to install the relevant software it asked for Snow Leopard.

Thanks

10.6 is only for Intel processors.

No you can not upgrade a G4 processor to an Intel processor.

You will never be able to run Snow Leopard on that computer.
