    Hi guys,

    I've just picked up an old used MacMini and i want to use it for a bit of playing.

    It's got OS X 10.3 on there and i would like to update this to the latest version, wikipedia states 10.5.8. Where can i get this from(UK) and how much will it cost?

    I'll attempt to use the machine for audio (and maybe video) playback whilst hooked up to my plasma (via DVI-->HDMI).

    Many thanks

    Hello- I have an iBook g4 (1.33 ghz) and it is running 10.5.8. It is very fast, and a wonderful machine. I am sure 10.5 will run great on your mini. You can get a good used version off of eBay or amazon. Mine came with leopard, but I've looked online for copies, and found many reasonably priced copies. If you do try eBay, check the "international" setting in advanced search, because you will have a much broader search...
