    Hello, not legally or rustworthy via Internet, & 10.6 is far cheaper...


    Leopard requirements/10.5.x...


        *  Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor


    minimum system requirements


        * 512MB of memory (I say 1.5GB for PPC at least, 2-3GB minimum for IntelMacs)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * 9GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

    Classic/OS9 Apps no longer supported.

    Trouble is Apple no longer sells it, check eBay & such for the Retail version, not the Gray Discs...



    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


    Other countries...



    You have to get 10.6.8 first to go even higher to 10.7 or 10.8
