    For my business I have a pair of mid 2007 iMacs running on OS 10.5 leopard. I have Parallels 5 running on both with windows xp, so we can use QuickBooks with the payroll feature (mac version of QB wont let you do your own payroll). I need to upgrade my system and i only see a few paths. Should I just upgrade all my software to OS 10.7 Lion, parallels 9, windows 7, or upgrade all software and some hardware upgrades (I was thinking maxing ram and a new ssd drive) or go a completely new rout and but two new PCs and remote connect to them through the iMacs w/ some OS upgrades.

    Edit: Specs: 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo (T7300), 250 GB HD, 1 GB ram

    I would recommend OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) over 10.7 (Lion), IF your iMacs can run it...
