Which specs wise of the imacs the ones with built in monitor desktop computers will run the latest Mac OS right now? Cause I posted here before saying I was gonna get a ibook to learn the mac os, but Now I'm thinking that the imacs are cheap and I dont need nothing powerful to learn the mac OS. heehhe another reason is I dont want to sell my sony psp cause metal gear solid is coming out.

I'd recommend getting an iMac G4 or up - obviously, the intel iMac will run Tiger the best, but any iMac G4 should be capable of running the OS...

(you'll need at least 512 MB of Ram too!)

I would forget all the previous models and just buy the current model as a refurb.

It will come in perfect condition with full factory 1 year warrantee.

Right now a refurbished 17" 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo iMac is running $1099.00

20" Core Duo 2.0 GHz models are going for $1399.00

These are wonderful machines.
