Mac OS X Costs: Hardware Requirements

Mac OS X is a good thing, but as with all good things, it does come with a price. You must have a modern Mac to be able to use it.

Apple states that you must have a Mac with a G3, G4, or G5 processor, such as a Power Mac G5, Power Mac G4, or PowerBook G4. Apple also says your Mac must have at least 256MB of RAM, a DVD drive, and built-in FireWire. Also, your Mac needs to have a built-in display or one that is connected to an Apple-supplied video card. Finally, you need at least 2GB of disk space.
