Will I be able to have the same Iweb site when I get a new computer?
I'm currently on a Macbook G4 10.4.11 and I'm going to buy a new Macbook Pro. I have done a lot of work on my website in Iweb and I'm wondering If I'll still have access to edit this website when I get my new computer. Can I still edit and update the same website in Iweb on the new Macbook Pro that I've been editing on my Macbook?

You will not have to reinstall anything. Parallels should work after you install Snow Leopard. In fact it should run faster since Snow Leopard uses 64-bit computing.
Now for Windows. Windows will not be infected at all. Both for Boot Camp and Parallels. All of your personal data, including the virtual drive holding Windows, will not be affected in anyway. Unless you happen to crash your hard drive, which is very unlikely.

No, you can choose to disable all of them and turn you mouse/trackpad into just a point-and-click device

A powerbook G4 can not be upgraded to Mountain Lion. I think the furthest a G4 processor can go is Leopard (OS 10.5).

I am running 10.4.11 on a Mac with intel core duo. I think I probably need to upgrade to latest os (Lion?). What is the best way to go about this?Best Answer:
If you have an "Intel Core Duo" you can not upgrade to Lion. You have to have at least "Intel Core 2 Duo".
If you have a processor supported by Lion, then first upgrade to Snow Leopard (OS10.6). Update to OS10.6.8. Then download and install Lion (OS10.7).
lost my 10.5 discs for bootcamp drivers.

I have a black Macbook. It currently has Ubuntu installed on it and does not have OS X. If I buy Snow Leopard will I be able to reinstall OS X?
Need to know if I buy Snow Leopard if I will be able to get it installed on a computer that no longer has OS X. Is this just an upgrade or can it be used to reinstall the entire OS?Answer
If your MacBook is Intel-based with at least 1GB of memory, you can install Snow Leopard.
Any Snow Leopard retail disk will do a clean install, but you may need to follow some extra steps with the $29 disk since "Erase and Install" may not be automatically present.
When you start up from the install DVD (press "C" during start up), you will have two options: "Utilities" and "Continue".
Select the "Utilities" button (there may be a reboot in order to run from the DVD). In the new screen that appears, under the "Utilities" menu, select Disk Utilities to format your hard drive (or partition) that Snow Leopard is going on to. When you have finished formatting, QUIT from Disk Utilities, and the installer will then complete the installation of Snow Leopard. (Note: be prepared to wait several minutes when the system reboots during installation as it copies and sets up all the files.)
I haven't tried setting up separate boot partitions for Ubuntu and Snow Leopard, but I normally keep several boot partitions with different versions of the Mac OS in case I have an app that needs an older OS. (Simply press "option" during startup to switch boot partitions.)
I don't want iLife or iWork, but I would like the Snow Leopard system upgrade. Isn't there a cheaper or free download? No, my MacBook is not new.
