  • Go to "About this Mac" under the Apple Menu.

    "About this Mac" will tell you what type of processor you have (Snow Leopard requires an "Intel" processor (won't work on PowerPC)).

    And, "About this Mac" will tell you how much memory you have (Snow Leopard requires at least 1GB of memory).
