    Snow Leopard requires at least an Intel chip and 1gb of RAM. Just make sure you have at least 1gb of RAM and you should be good to go.

    It will work, however I would suggest sticking with Leopard with anything less than 2GB of RAM. Whilst it will work with 1GB, it is optimal at 2GB and above.

    I think you'll be fine. Your machine has enough RAM. It should be a fairly decent experience if you're looking for the latest Mac OS & features.

    He has a Core2Duo so he can run 64 Bit apps. And to the OP, yes I'd absolutely recommend getting Snow Leopard.
