    I have received NEW IPAD4, however when I try and sync it with my OSX 10.5.8 PPC, I get a message saying I must have iTunes 10.7 or later to be able to sync the iPad.

    Unfortunately, my PPC is not compatible with the latest iTunes 10.7

    Can you offer me any suggestions other than purchasing a new mac please?

    Thank you

    Apple iPad requirements page states a minimum of 10.6.8 is required, so not much you can do.

    If it was an old Intel Mac, even that has options, but with PPC, not as many options.

    What exactly do you need to sync?
    Things like Mail, contacts etc you can setup a gmail account as a work around and use it's syncing service.
    For audio/video media there are likely other options but I'm not unfamiliar with them.
