    I have all my iTunes songs on my old G5 iMac. The software is updated to the most recent allowed on this machine which I believe is two generations old. Will I be able to use the cloud off this macine for my music on iTunes? Thanks

    you need iTunes 10.5 for iCloud. I am not sure if the g5 can run that

    You also need Lion for iCloud. Some suspect Snow Leopard will get iCloud support, but your G5 won't run Snow Leopard either. So you're S.O.L.

    Yeah, but that won't get you iCloud on the Mac. It will only allow you to update an iOS device to 5.0.

    iCloud on G5 PowerPC Mac

    I have SOHO Organizer from www.chronosnet.com. It has its own calendar and address book and syncs on my G5 Tower with iCloud. It is a third party solution but keeps the G5 computers alive.
