    '5GB for Snow leopard' refers to hard drive space needed. The 4GB your Macbook Pro came with refers to its available RAM (live) memory. Snow Leopard only requires 1GB of RAM.

  • You only need a minimum of 1GB of memory. (5GB refers to the minimum available hard disk space.)

    Snow Leopard is only available on disk, not as a download.

    You will have no problem running Snow Leopard.
