    First post for a lurker!

    I have a PowerMac G4 733 MHz processor, 1.5GB , 140GB HDD Quicksilver running OS X 10.3.9 and I am contemplating upgrading it to Tiger. Would you recommend this, and if so what is the best source for the software?

    I should add, or would I be better off keeping Panther on this machine?

    No, he can't, you cannot receive PMs yet.

    I am sure that you can purvey your pearls of wisdom across at least three posts, and then you will be able to PM.

    Tiger is easy to find, it's a nice step up. Leopard is better, you've got a PMG4, I'd recommend a fresh install of Leopard actually if you can get a hold of it and make sure you got 512MB+ memory and a Core Image capable graphics card.

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I appreciate the responses, I suppose that right now I will keep an eye on ebay and Amazon to see if any deals on Tiger or Leopard come up.
