    Unfortunately, no.

    Beginning with OS 10.6, the PowerPC processor is not supported.
    An Intel processor must be used.

  • 10.5.8 is the latest OS for Powerbooks and PowerMacs.
    Snow Leopard or later does not work on these models.

  • Lynne - as its been said the answer is no - suggestion make a donation of this system to a worthwhile charity and then get a new Mac - you will be satisfied that you donated your hardware and happy with the new computer.
