Only need to have the $29 Snow Leopard install disk.
The Mac Box Set includes the above, plus iLife and iWorks.
The $29 install will install over Tiger, over Leopard and over a freshly formatted partition or hard drive. If doing a fresh install, the installation will give you opportunity to import settings, applications, and/or files from another partition with previous Mac OS. (Doing a clean install this way, also allows you to go back and start up from your old OS partition if you need to because something doesn't work quite right. I had printers that took several days to work properly under Snow Leopard.)
Snow Leopard requires 1) Intel-based Mac, 2) 1 GB RAM, 3) 5 GB Hard Drive Space, 4) DVD. Mac Box Set requires 2 GB RAM and 12 GB hard drive space.
Look at the Apple web site to determine what benefits/extra features Snow Leopard may give you. So far, every program I had running under Tiger, will run under Snow Leopard.

when I go to the link for more info about the $9.95 upgrade for recent owners the link just takes me back to the snow leopard page. where do I go?
How do I find out the type of processor have? I checked the Apple menu under "About this Mac" and it's not very clear.
I am trying to upgrade to the latest operating system and I want to make sure that I am able to with my current processor.Answer
When you go to "About This Mac" and read the specs for the processor, it may seem a bit cryptic.
If the phrase "PowerPC" is in the description, you can't upgrade to OS10.6 (Snow Leopard).
If the word "Intel" is in the description, then you are good for Snow Leopard.
But for Lion, the description can not read "Intel Core Duo".
It must read "Intel Core 2 Duo" or have the phrase "Core i3", "Core i5", "Core i7", or "Xeon".

I have an Mac Pro 2009 and a MacBook Pro. Can I install Snow Leopard on both using the one disk? Or do I have to purchase two versions of Snow LeopardAnswer
A single disk can be used to install Snow Leopard on multiple Macs, however you should have a license for each Mac and the only way to obtain a license is to purchase the Snow Leopard disk. Think of it this way: the disk is only the medium, the license is $19.99.
Make sure that your Macs were not released AFTER OS 10.7 (Lion) was released. Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) may not support Macs that were released after Lion was released. Lion was released July 20, 2011, so your 2009 Mac Pro should be okay. There were some MacBook Pro models released after July 2011, so I would be cautious with these models.
I have an iMac model that was released on May 3, 2011, but I purchased from the Apple Store, refurbished, in 2013 with OS 10.8 preinstalled. The Snow Leopard disk would not install on it, but the iMac will run Snow Leopard from a disk that had been connected to a 2006 iMac and had Snow Leopard installed by the 2006 iMac.
I am still running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on my MakeBook Pro. Please tell me if and how iI can install Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 from Install DVD
The model of my MacBook Pro is MacBookPro4.1 of year 2006
processor: Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 cores, speed 2.4 GHz
memory: 2 GB
available capacity: 132.63 GB out of 186 GB
Thanks in advance for your precious guidance
Yes, you need 10.6.6 to use the App Store. If you click the apple in the top left corner and about this mac, you will see your version number. Here's a rundown:
10.6 - Snow Leopard
10.5 - Leopard
10.4 - Tiger
Snow Leopard requires an Intel Mac.

Will Microsoft 2004 and Lion upgrade work together? Because I think I need to upgrade to Lion for i Cloud but don't want to have probs with Word
i Cloud, Lion upgrade & Microsoft Word compatabilityAnswer
No. MS Office 2004 does not work in Lion. This is because MS Office 2004 is compiled as PowerPC apps rather than Intel, and Lion no longer supports PowerPC.
However MS 2008 and 2011 do work.

I have Microsoft Office 2008 on my 2.4 Ghz black MacBook. Will I need to reinstall it once I've updated to Snow Leopard?

No you will not need to reinstall Microsoft Office 2008, this is because when you install snow leopard you are just deleting some unnecessary system files and installing some great new features onto your macbook and the applications that you had in leopard will stay the same and will run the same if not better on Snow Leopard. Good Luck!
