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.
