Hi all, I'm new to this forum and I would really appreciate any advice from those in the know about hardware versus OS versions. My friend has a iMac 8.1 (Intel) and it is currently running on 10.5.8 and she can no longer use web stuff requiring flash. Is it worth me buying the Snow Leopard disc and upgrading for her or shall I recommend she just ditch this old Mac (bought new around 2008) and get a new one? It has the standard 2gb ram is already a bit slow, I wondered if anyone would know how far (OS wise) I could upgrade it to before it would grind to a halt without buying more memory? She only uses it to surf the web and watch streaming tv really, which isn't currently working due to the Flash issue. Thanks very much!
