Apple Original PowerBook Ad
need help updating mac?

want to upgrade mac OS x 10.2.8 to 10.3.1.
i have a Ibook clam shell 367 MHz

Upgrading OS 10 from .2 to .3, .4, .5, etc requires purchase of the new version. Going from10.3.0 to 10.3.9 OR 10.4.0 to 10.4.11 is free, as it is an upgrade.

Upgrades = free
New Version = $

Depending on your CPU speed, RAM, etc. I’d go with either .3 or .4. (I don’t believe any Intel nor G5 came with .2, so I’d say you have a G3 or G4 max.) 10.5 is too slow on anything short of a G5 and 10.6 only runs on Intel.

10.3.9 operates well and will run many of the newer (non-intel only) programs. The same goes for 10.4.11, which can run even more of the newer apps. Both also have the advantage of including “Classic” mode. (OS 9.2.2, which can run the pre-OS 10 programs.) OS 10.5 and later dropped “Classic” completely.

Check on eBay. There are usually plenty of people selling older Mac OS sets cheap. Make sure it is an OEM set that will run ANY Mac. You DO NOT want a model specific (IE: ad says “Came with my G4 iMac”) set as it will only work on that group of Macs. An iMac set will not work on a Mini, PowerBook, Tower, etc, (and may only work on a specific few models of iMacs.) Also make sure it is the original discs and not a copy. If you are going to spend money, at least make sure you are getting the real disk(s)

You can install from OS 10,3.0 to 10.3.8 and get free upgrades to OS 10.3.9 via download from Apple. Just click on the Software Update button (under the Apple) and it will check to see what you need and ask to install it. (Assuming you have an internet connection naturally.)

10.4.0 to 10.4.10 works the same, with free upgrading to 10.4.11.
