My mother in law has an imac running 10.5.3, Processor 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Memory 1 GB.  We would like to use Facetime to keep in touch with her, but are unclear if she needs to upgrade her machine

 

Thank you


Mac OS X (10.5.3)

    Hello,

     

    Looks like you'd have to Upgrade at least the OS...

    Macs with Mac OS X v10.6.6 or later that were produced before those referenced in the sections above can use FaceTime for Mac. Calls will be sent and received using standard (non-HD) video.

    Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...

     

    General requirements

       * Mac computer with an Intel processor

        * 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)

        * 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.

        * Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.

     

    Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?...

    It's been pulled from the online store, so you have to call Apple to buy it.
