    No. You need to upgrade to 10.6.6 or later to access the App Store.



    If you need to purchase Snow Leopard contact Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service. The price is $29.00 plus tax. You will receive physical media - DVD - by mail.


    Third-party sources for Snow Leopard are:


    Snow Leopard from Amazon.com

    Snow Leopard from eBay


    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store.

    2. 1GB of memory
    3. 5GB of available disk space
    4. DVD drive for installation
