    Apple now delivers downloadable apps such as iTunes through the App Store. In order to access the App Store you must have OS 10.6.6 or later.

    If you have an Intel-based Mac you can install Snow Leopard.
    If you have a PowerPC processor, you can not install Snow Leopard.
    (look in the Apple Menu, "About This Mac", and see if you have an Intel processor or a PowerPC processor).

    You also need at least 1GB of memory. More is better.

    Once Snow Leopard is installed, select "Software Updates" in the "Apple" menu to update to OS 10.6.8 (the last version of Snow Leopard).
