  • Panther is so old! Your Mac may be able to run OS X Tiger, which is also really old and no longer supported by Apple. But it may serve you well if you stay off the internet. You could buy a newer Mac and OS X on eBay or Craigs List. Or get a refurbished Mac from the Apple Store, since you know how long a Mac can continue to work. Refurbished Macs have the same one year warranty as a new one and all of the standard OS X software. I pinch my pennies and get AppleCare for my notebook computers and never regretted it.
