    Phone the online Apple Store and order a Mac OS X 10.6 DVD.

    Snow Leopard = OS X 10.6.x


    It is Not available as a download... It is a Paid Upgrade.


    Do this first...


    Check that your Mac meets the System Requirements for Snow Leopard...


    Snow Leopard Tech Specs



    If so Contact Apple in your Country to Purchase a Snow Leopard Disc...



    In the US...

    1-800-MY-APPLE or 1-800-676-2775



    After the Successful Install, run Software Update to get the latest updates for Snow Leopard.



    Be sure to make a Backup of your Current System Before Upgrading...
