Hello, I have an iMac running 10.4.11 with a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2, SDRAM, and I am interested in buying an iPad 2. I know that I need to upgrade to at least 10.6, but I was told by two different Apple representatives that I first need to upgrade to 10.5, and then to 10.6. However, I was also told by the same Apple representatives (in Japan) that 10.5 is no longer sold by Apple (as of last week) and to look elsewhere for it. I looked on Amazon Japan and the 10.5.6 is selling for over $320 (U.S.). I've read that it's possible to upgrade directly to Snow Leopard 10.6 from my current system. Has anyone done this? Were there any problems? If I can directly upgrade, does anyone know of any potential problems when syncing with an iPad 2? My goal is to have an iPad 2, but I didn't realize that I would encounter so many hassles along the way. Any advice, comments, or suggestions would be appreciated from this computer klutz. Thank you.
