    Hi,

    I am brand new mac user, never used it before, I just got an older iMac and want to learn about it.

    I need help to know what's the newest system that can be installed on it.
    its 500 MHZ power pc processor
    30 GB Hard drive
    512 Ram

    I want the newest possible system so I can start on a newer system espicially since i am still a starter.

    Another question I have, do i have to purchase a cd to install a system or is it possible to download it from the internet?

    Any little piece of help is appreciated.

    Thanks alot,
    Hussam

    Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" is the latest Mac OS X supported on that Mac.
