hey guys!

so i just acquired this old compaq laptop, its got 8MB of ram and i was wondering if i could get tiger on it because...well... its old, i dont think it could run leopard or snow leopard anywhere near decently because it has an intel single core cpu!

so yeah, please tell me what you need and i'll be glad to answer :rolleyes:

If your laptop really has 8 GB of RAM it is probably not "old".

What model is it, post some specs.
