How much of a hassle are Blackberries with an older Mac? Is there limited functionality? Or trouble prone / experienced users only?

First you can run DM with 10.5 on a PPC. Your next question is interesting...The BB does not require a computer to function....if you rely on syncing all the time it could be frustrating. Updating software could also be an adventure, but that is also something that can be done at your carrier's store or OTA. Get a hold of either pocket mac or missing sync ($)...I used to use PM and never had any issues.
