    hello,

    i recently bought a used imac g5 1.8ghz version 10.3.5.

    is there any way i can change the processor to an intel processor as i cant seem to upgrade my os (and a lot of other programs) running on the current version.

    help :/

    No.

    That iMac can run 10.5 fine, though.

    Changing processors from PPC to Intel requires a full new motherboard and firmware.
