    Ok, question number uno.

    Does anyone know what the system requirements are going to be for the 64-bit version? I have a newer macbook, model ID macbook5,1 with the 2.4 ghz processor and 2 gb of ram.

    Question number two.

    I also have a core duo mac mini, will i have to purchase two different copies of snow leopard? both are running leopard already. obviously if i can go 64-bit ill have to get the 32-bit for the mini but I was just curious if i decide/have to go 32 on both if I can only purchase one.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I would assume the installer will figure it out from a single DVD. It doesn't make any sense (for :apple:) to do otherwise. ;) :)

    Snow Leopard supports both 32-bit and 64-bit computers. You have little to worry about.

    You'd buy two copies, or a family pack if I'm not mistaken. That way you can install it on two systems.

    No, the install DVD would work on an unlimited number of machines. What's stopping you is only your conscience.

    You'd buy the family pack for $49 (which is good for up to 5 machines, I think).
