    Yes it will work. Snow Leopard requires a minimum of 1GB of memory.

    I am surprised your "2010-2011" MacBook Pro has OS 10.5.8 on it.
    Apple usually updates OS on new Macs as soon as a new OS is released.
    Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) was released on August 29, 2009.
    Lion (OS 10.7) was released on July 20, 2011.

  • The minimum memory requirement for Snow Leopard is 2GB, so it should work if your Mac meets all the other requirements. Snow Leopard was first released in late 2009, so any Mac from 2010 or later should meet the requirements.
