Before doing anything on this laptop remember one this that your system has been contain 8.6 version of the Mac OS x. hence this kind of version is built in the late 1999. In today?s high configuration based world you need to buy a new one instead of upgrading this older laptop. This is the best suggestion for you. This type of upgrade task will be taken so much time on your system. It may be possible that it will be goes failure.

For an interesting overview of Mac OS history, they have to be mention that this is to be possible to install the 9,0 Mac OS on to it. If the process clock frequency is to be support this. Then this type of upgrade task is to be happening on the system. Hence as per my suggestion if you want to do this task on your own risk, then do this task. You need to first check the compatibility with the newest OS. This will be help to avoid problem.

Sorry, but I think you're going to be disappointed if you listen my thoughts. This is the completely older laptop. This laptop contain only 16 MB RAM and within this RAM what can you do. You need good laptop in today?s world. This is the best for you. If you try to upgrade this OS, then it could be possible that it goes to the failure. Hence the better way is to be buy new laptop and then install Mac OS x 9.0 or the advanced OS on it.
