I'm not sure which computer to get. I want to use CS4 Adobe photoshop and illustrator.
It is not clear to me about the Mac OS Snow Leopard. From the questions I read it
sounds like this is not the computer to get because of the intel processor. I'm not sure what that means. Help.

Can i upgrade to snow leopard will i still retain the iLife. does my macbook qualifies for the new upgrade?
I had bought macbook 13 inch plastic version entry level in may 09 which shipped with leopard 10.5.8, it came with 2 discs one of it is the Mac OS leopard disc what does the second disc consists? the second disc states macbook applications install dvd with some AHT version on it does this disc contains iLife? I checked my existing programs i have Photo, iMovie, GarageBand, iWeb, and iDVD which means i have iLife. So now the million dollar question if i buy just the Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard OS worth 48$ will i still be able to retain my existing iLife. I want to do a clean install if i buy the new OS. does iLife comes builtin inside the new OS?

Owned a Mac for years: MAC OS X 10.4.11 / 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo / Safari 4.1.3. No software updates available. What's best way to upgrade?
If it isn't already apparent, I'm also not very "computer literate". I've been told I need to bring the Mac into a store, but that's really not feasible. I know there have been several software tiers since my "ancient" form of Safari (Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard and now Lion). Had Firefox at one time, but can't seem to get it again (without updating the computer, which I have been unable to do as of yet).
Oh, don't know if it's important -- but "memory-wise" -- the computer has 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (not that I know what any of that means).
I honestly don't have a clue what to do -- and the fact that I'm considering both an iBook and an iPhone purchase in the near future only confuses me that much more. Any help would be appreciated so I can get the most out of my computer.

Would upgrading my OS help my computer as a game machine?
There are quite a few games that I want to purchase for my MacBook Pro, but I've run into some troubling issues.
Just about every single game I've demoed on my computer can't run well. My Macbook Pro is an Intel Core 2 Duo running at 2.2 Ghz with 2GB of RAM on top of a GeForce 8600 GPU (OS is at 10.4.11), which, in layman's terms, means I have a computer that greatly exceeds the recommended requirements of just about every game that I want. However, no matter what, I can't get the games to run well. Even if I tone down the graphics to the absolute minimum, they run horribly.
So I figured that maybe my OS needs upgrading, but I should probably double check since spending more than $100 for a fix that might not work is pretty demanding. Will upgrading my OS help? Or is it a different problem altogether? I get Mac game demos from MacGameFiles.com, so maybe the demos are just buggy?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
