I have an older Macbook running OSX 10.4.11
1.83 GHZ Intel Core Duo
512 MB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM

Would this configuration be possible to upgrade to Snow Leopard, even though that requires 1GB ram?
If so, how smoothly will it run?
thanks

It will run, but the 512Mb of ram would make it run very slowly. I suggest upgrading your Macbook to its maximum of 2Gb.

General requirements, according to CNET are:

The basic requirements for Snow Leopard are as follows:
An Apple computer with an Intel Processor
1GB of Memory (RAM)
5GB of hard drive space (Storage)
DVD drive for installation

So basically, you should add more RAM if you can. Otherwise, it'll probably run rather slow.

What if I upgraded to just Leopard?
I think that one needs only 512mb of ram

Leopard would work, but its not supported by Apple anymore. It's also getting hard to find.
