Hi experts,
I need assistance updating the operating system on my MAC.  I currently have version 10.4.11.  Is it safe to update to 10.5.8 or higher?  

Thanks in advance.

Here's the requirements and options page from Apple: http://www.apple.com/macosx/specs.html  You need an Intel processor to upgrade to the current version which is 10.6.x.  Apple does not sell anything older.  You would have to get OSX 10.5.x from some where else.

Tell us exactly what computer you have, how fast the processor is and how much RAM it has. 10.5 does not run well on all G5's, so even though you may be "in spec." according to Apple, we will be able to tell you if it's a bad idea. Also, what will you be doing with the computer?
