    anybody know what is the latest version of MacBook Pro that can still run Tiger?

    i know there were a few that came with Leopard installed, but can still revert back to Tiger. i don't want to gamble... wanna make sure that it can run Tiger for sure.

    it'd be helpful to have the model #, e.g. A1138, etc.

    thanks!

    more stable version of ProTools. i do TV audio work professionally, and stability is paramount over features.

    As far as I know there are no Macs that don't support Tiger. The processors are still Intel so it should work... Though it might not work as well because these new Macs are built for Leopard or Snow Leopard.

    The only reaosn you can't still run OS9 on modern Macs is because of the transition to Intel processors. If OS9 was built for Intel I could install is on any Mac really....

    That's the second last model before the unibodies.

    There may be no Macs that don't support Tiger, but that doesn't mean Tiger will support all Macs. Tiger wont have drivers for the newer models, and since Apple never made an Intel retail disc of Tiger, how would you get a copy? The restore discs are tied to the model they shipped with.
