    I have a similar question.

     

    Am I limited to the upgrade versions I can install, based on the Technical Specs for a MacBook Pro (late 2006) (Oct. 24, 2006)?

     

    I'd like to go to os10.6, so I can sync with my iPhone 4s.  Is OS X Mountain Lion an option worth considering?

    OS X Mountain Lion system requirements

     

    To install Mountain Lion, you need one of these Macs:

     

        iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)

        MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)

        MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)

        MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)

        Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)

        Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)

        Xserve (Early 2009)

     

     

    Your Mac needs:

     

        OS X v10.6.8 or OS X Lion already installed

        2 GB or more of memory

        8 GB or more of available space

    You will have no problem running Snow Leopard. But I'd max out the RAM.
