    This is really going to sound like a dumb ass question, but I'm brand new to Mac. I've a new iMac and cannot work out if I have the Snow Leopard or the old OSX.

    I searched my Mac and online, can anyone tell me how I can find this out? Thanks :eek:

    click the apple logo:apple: in the top left hand corner of the screen. then click about this mac. if you have 10.6.* then you have snow leopard.

    yes
    klick on the blue apple in the top left corner of your screen and select "about this mac "
    then you should see a little window popping up where you can see
    which osx you got and what processor and how much ram
    ...if it says 10.6. then you got snow leopard
    ...if it says 10.5. then you got leopard
    ...if it says 10.4. then you got tiger
    (these are the only versions that would run on a intel based mac )
    and if you klick on "more info" you get all the info you can imagine about your mac

    there are no such things like dump questions

    on the top left menu click on about this mac are something like that. it will is say 10.5 for leopard or 10.6 for snow leopard.

    edit i just saw your signature if its the 21.5 it would be 10.6 snow leopard.

    Thanks for all the quick replies :) it's 10.6.2 so that confirms it. Ithink my girlfriend has 10.5 so is it worth her upgrading to snow on her MacBook air?

    No such thing as dumb questions. Since you already got your answer you could also assume it's snow if you got it in the apple store recently. They updated all them shortly after release of snow.
