    Which specs wise of the imacs the ones with built in monitor desktop computers will run the latest Mac OS right now? Cause I posted here before saying I was gonna get a ibook to learn the mac os, but Now I'm thinking that the imacs are cheap and I dont need nothing powerful to learn the mac OS. heehhe another reason is I dont want to sell my sony psp cause metal gear solid is coming out.

    I'd recommend getting an iMac G4 or up - obviously, the intel iMac will run Tiger the best, but any iMac G4 should be capable of running the OS...

    (you'll need at least 512 MB of Ram too!)

    with enough RAM, an imac G3 can run Mac OS 10.4. So long it is slot loading, and you don't mind having a CRT monitor :D

    I would forget all the previous models and just buy the current model as a refurb.

    It will come in perfect condition with full factory 1 year warrantee.

    Right now a refurbished 17" 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo iMac is running $1099.00

    20" Core Duo 2.0 GHz models are going for $1399.00

    These are wonderful machines.
