    Let's just say that somehow you were able to install CS6, CC, and Ableton Live on your mate's mbp 1,1.

    The mbp would run those applications slower than a relay team of sloths doing the butterfly stroke in a pool of molasses.

    I'd recommend looking for a more powerful machine.

    Hopefully he can find a good machine. With applications like those it sounds like he has an interesting career/hobby, and the right tools for the right job is critical.

    Good luck - cheers

    CS6 requires a 64-bit processor, and CC requires at least OS X 10.7 on top of that. CS5 is the last version you can get working on that laptop.

    Ableton Live 8 and 9 should work in 10.6.8, just make sure you are trying to install the 32-bit version.
