Can I install Snow Leopard on a Macbook 2,1? It has 10.4.11 on it now.
2GHz Intel Core Duo
1 GB RAM
Apple states the following basic Snow Leopard system requirements are:
Mac computer with an Intel processor (IA-32). "Yonah" processors such as Core Solo and Core Duo can run only 32-bit applications; later x86-64 architecture processors such as Core 2 Duo are also able to run 64-bit applications.
1 GB of RAM
5 GB of free disk space
DVD drive (also accessible via Remote Disc) or external USB or FireWire DVD drive for installation
In summation, yes.
I really recommend having 2gb of ram for snow leopard. It will use more ram when idle than tiger. Eg ,kernel task(your kernel) will use around 200 a 300mb of your ram. Stick a browser on top of that will dive ram total use up to 600mb. Add in 64mb more for integrated graphics etc. .
Going from tiger to 10.6 on my old computer was definitely worth it though. The computer was an old pentium 4 hackintosh, much older than your laptop. System performed better than when on tiger which is amazing considering that the computer came out in 2005.
