Can I upgrade an eMac PowerPC from OS X 10.4.11?
I have an eMac PowerPC with OS X 10.4.11 that I would like to upgrade. I know I can't upgrade to Snow Leopard, but can I upgrade to Leopard or something newer than what I'm running?

You cannot upgrade to Snow Leopard as the eMac does NOT have an Intel processor. That being said, I don't really see the benefit of spending money on Leopard for such an old Mac. You'd be better off trying to trade up to a newer Mac that has an Intel processor and then you could jump all the way to Snow Leopard. Also, I have found that older Macs like yours appear to actually run faster running Tiger rather than Leopard. I love Macs, but make sure you spend your money wisely.
