Can it cope with OS X ?Thanks for any suggestions.Alan Comments Reply 1 of 2 altivec_2.0 Posts: 995member July 21, 2004 10:49AM It'll work, but it'll be so slow that you'd probably only be able to type and surf the web(slowly). If you are going to put it on, I'd invest in alot of ram. Reply 2 of 2 alanwoollcombe Posts: 54member July 21, 2004 5:28PM Thanks for that. At this point, much as I hate to pension it off, I'm thinking I ought to start considering my old Powerbook as a spare external hard drive.Thanks again.Alan Sign In or Register to comment.
