    1) Make sure your computer meets Snow Leopard technical specifications - http://support.apple.com/kb/SP575  This mostly means making sure it is an Intel Mac (your MacBook is) and has at least 1GB RAM (more is recommended).  To check RAM, go to the Apple in the upper left corner of any window, then  "About This Mac". Now continue to "More Info...".  It should say you have at least 1GB of "memory".

     

    2) Apple no longer carries 10.6 in its stores or online. Telephone Apple to purchase a Snow Leopard disc. In the USA: (800) 676-2775 (contact information for other countries: http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57)

    Alternatively you can buy from online retailers but anticipate paying much more than the original price which is the price still charged by Apple

     

    3) Backing up your computer before upgrading is always a good idea.

     

    4) After installing from the DVD, update your Snow Leopard installation using Software Update or manually downloading and installing the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v.1.1 - http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399
