    The furthest a G4 with the PowerPC processor can be upgraded is Leopard (OS 10.5.8).
    (Not Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.8).)

  • The best you can do on a G4 is OS X 10.5 Leopard.

  • Yeah of course. Officially the highest upgrade Powerbook G4 can support is MacOs 10.5 but most of the time MacOs 10.4 works best.
