I am trying to install applications that require the 10.6 and above and not sure if I should install that or go to 10.7 or 10.8 so need guidance.  What should I do next??

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    First you need to research all the problems people are having with the higher OSX versions, & make sure you have a bootable clone of what you have just in case.


    then you must get 10.6 if they still have it, install it & update to 10.6.8 so you have the App Store to buy & download the huge 10.8 Installer.


    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 & Apple Stores, so you have to call Apple to buy it, last I heard.

    Call Apple Sales...in the US: 1-800-MY-APPLE. Or Support... 1-800-275-2273
