    I run tiger 10.4.11, on a powerbook G4 12, my processor is 1.33 GHz Power PC G4.

    Can I make the jump into 10.6 Snow Leopard?

    I have been told by Appel vendor many times that I must purchase a new one : )

    I am gussing that I can still go for Leopard (10.5).

    You can run Tiger (10.4) and Leopard (10.5), but not Snow Leopard (10.6).

    That's going to depend on what you need SL for. There is still a lot of software available for Leopard. I have 3 PPCs on Leopard and 1 Intel on Snow Leopard. This system seems to work out well for me.

    You said that you may just buy a new Mac Mini (w/Snow Leopard). I was just trying to save you some money. Rather, than buying a new computer you might be able to get by with Leopard. That is unless you have a specific reason (i.e., program) that you need to use Snow Leopard.
