    Currently I have a white iMac. It's the one that looks like the G5, but it's not a G5, because it has the iSight and an Intel processor. It's running Tiger. I want to upgrade to Snow Leopard. Would it run okay? Here are the specs:

    Version 10.4.11
    Processor: 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory: 1GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    It will run Snow Leopard fine but I would upgrade the RAM to 3GB (maximum your Mac can handle)

    Thanks! Do I have to upgrade my iMac to Leopard before I upgrade to Snow Leopard?

    Legally you have to buy the Mac Box Set to update from Tiger to Snow Leopard, but technically the Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD will work too, and you don't need Leopard installed to install Snow Leopard. The Upgrade DVD is a RETAIL DVD, which works on any Intel Mac despite what or if an OS is installed.
