    You can put up to OS 10.5.8, but that's pretty expensive for that old of a computer

    only the next version of OS X could be installed, 10.5 Leopard. Snow Leopard cant be installed on PowerPC Macs.

    Seriously, for that price, there are much better deals out there, apple product or no. I bet even an iPod touch can surf the web faster.
