Hi, again. Sorry to be such a post hog, but learning about Macs after years of PC work can be trying at times...and learning about old Macs can be especially trying.
I've got a G4 AGP with a 450Mhz processor. It originally had OS 9 on it, but my friend who owned it long ago decided to try installing OS 10. Well, it didn't work very well, and I'm wondering if this processor just can't handle OS 10.
Is it possible to upgrade the processor on this bad boy so that OS 10 might work properly? I see where the G4's can go up to as high as 733Mhz, but I don't know if this chip would be compatible on my motherboard.
After doing the upgrade you are thinking about I can honestly say that it is not a good idea. While you may be able to get everything to work it moves incredibly slow (System architecture - bus speed etc.) you will do better with something used like a G5 or something with an intel processor. (an intel imac will blow the doors off)
