    Hey, everybody. I'm new here, so this is my first post.

    My old computer (a laptop) runs on OS X 10.3.9 and cannot support the newest version of Flash; however, I am having difficulty viewing simple stuff on pages such as Facebook, which is horribly troublesome. Is there any way around this without having to buy a new computer? I pretty much can't update this computer to any higher operating system; doing so would surely crash it.

    Thanks.

    It would help if we knew what kind of mac you had, with the exact specs. You might be surprised to find that it'll run tiger just fine.

    Yeah, Tiger runs just fine on my iBook G3 500 MHz with 576 MB of memory.

    What speed is the processor and how much memory does it have? You can definitely run Tiger and may even be able to run Leopard.

    Processor: 1.33 GHz PowerPC G4

    Memory: 1 GB DDR SDRAM

    I really don't want to update it, though...this computer's already 4-5 years old and lags a bunch...it's the financial aspect that repels me from upgrading.

    You could run Leopard with absolutely no problem, no hardware upgrades required. Either way, a fresh install might speed up your machine. It's not slow for lack of system resources, but there's something running that is slowing things down.
