When upgrading from 10.6 to 10.7
Be aware that some software is not compatible…

Old Quicken, Old MS Office, and older Adobe products are NOT compatible...
No more Power PC apps(32Bit)!
I'd remove all 3rd party extras before upgrading...
(at least make sure they are all compatible)
and as usual...back-up your files before upgrading....
10.5 will work on a Mac with a 867 mhz or faster processor...
You can upgrade to 10.4....any Mac that came with a Firewire Port....
10.4 likes RAM...it makes a big difference in speed...It will work with 256mb...but it's slow...
1gb is better...more than 1gb ...even better...
Especially if you have a bunch of music, photos, movies...
