    Nope, sorry. Snow Leopard is only for Macs with Intel processors and at least 1GB of RAM, 5GB of disk space and a DVD drive.

    One more thing - even today's least expensive Mac will probably outperform that old girl. I just upgraded from a dual 2.5GHz G5 to a Mac Mini. Get lots of RAM.

  • No. Snow Leopard requires a Mac with an Intel processor.

    Here are the system requirements from Apple's website for Snow Leopard:
    System Requirements
    Mac computer with an Intel processor
    1GB of memory
    5GB of available disk space
    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.
