    Hi. :confused:

    My version of OS is currently OS 10.5.8.

    2.1 GHz Intel 2 Duo Core Processor.

    I don't know if this helps, but maybe it'll help diagnose my problem. Basically, I went on Apples website to download the new Mac App Store. And my "Easiest Download Ever" won't appear. It tells me to go to Software Updates up on the :apple: bar. When it checks, it says no new updates are available. Pretty much like it doesn't exist. What is my problem?

    The Mac App Store is only available on OSX 10.6.6 and later. If you want it you have to buy an upgrade to Snow Leopard

    Will my Mac carry it? My Dad thinks this compy won't. I have it, I just don't think my computer will operate it.

    Thanks for the help!

    Every mac which has intel processor can handle snow leopard. Actually, snow leopard will improve performance of your mac since it is better in use of hardware resources.

    Awesome! I was wondering why my Mac was running slower. (Especially since I just wiped it a month ago minus my Adobe Pack, iLife, iWork, ect.)

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the help. I'll find SL when I get back tonight.
