Hi, Snow Leopard is not an Upgrade from 10.7.4, it'd be a Downgrade, since SL is 10.6.x.
Did you mean mean you can't upgrade to Mountain Lion/10.8.x?
If so, feel fortunate, the only worse OS than that is Windows8, so if going back to PCs, be sure to get one that runs Win7 or less.

I'd have to agree with BD on this one.
OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion has been a lot of troubles for a lot of Mac users since its introduction.
Feel lucky to be on Lion and everything OK with your iMac.
If your iMac does everything you want it to do now, why is it a problem that you can't update to ML.
Do you like Lion?
It hasn't even been available for a year.
Personally, I don't like Lion or ML. I am staying on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Good luck with that PC.
Windows 8 has been a big fail with the PC industry, so far and Windows 7 not exactly any better than any other previous versions of Windows.
Hope you enjoy constant protection and vigilance from spyware, viruses and the like.
