  • Best Answer:

    You already have the most up to date version of Snow Leopard... which is OS 10.6.8. You can upgrade from OS10.6.8.

    "Snow Leopard" is simply Apple's codename for OS 10.6...

    "Lion" is Apple's codename for OS 10.7...

  • OS X 10.6.8 is Snow Leopard... OS X 10.7 is Lion... You can even download OS X 10.9 (which is Mavericks) for free... Just go to the APP Store to get it....
