White MacBook that came with 10.5 can work with retail 10.6?
A coworker has a white MacBook - he is unsure as to when he bought it, but he said it's still running Leopard. As he bought an iPhone 5, he needs Snow Leopard. Will a retail version of SL be enough for the upgrade?

Unfortunately, that's not enough information for anyone here to be of any help. Get a screen shot of his 'About This Mac' screen (Apple -> About This Mac -> More Info...), or anything regarding the specs of the machine, and someone should be able to help you determine if it can run Snow Leopard.
Here's an example of the screen I'm referring to:

Probably yes, it should have 2 GB of RAM though.
