Can this be upgraded to Snow Leopard?

I picked up an iMac at our university surplus store for $175. It works well (hey, it's a Mac).

Basic specs are: 1.83 Apple Core Duo, 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

It's got Leopard but I'd like to upgrade to Snow Leopard (as well as iTunes 10.6) if possible.

My plan is to get it ready as a Christmas present for our god son who just stared high school (his mom wouldn't be able to afford a new iMac and he'd prefer Apple over a PC any day). He'd mostly be using it for school projects and his music.

Possible relevant side notes: I have a Macbook (2006) that I just replaced a failed hard drive in and upgraded the OS and memory. Reinstalled the iLife '06 suite and it runs GREAT.

So my questions are -

1. Can the upgrades described above be done

2. Is it worth it

3. Would I be able to install the iLife suite that came with my Macbook on the iMac also?

Solução escolhida

This system can run Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard". However, it cannot boot in 64-bit mode nor does it support "OpenCL". It cannot run versions of Mac OS X more recent than 10.6.8.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Thanks machead3 for your reply. As a follow up, what might be my options for making this a decent functioning iMac? I'm not a techie so I lost you on the 64-bit OpenCL part. Could you clarify? Thanks!


The OS will install as a crippled version - some of it will work. It depends on what you intend to do with the machine. E-mail and web-shopping will be fine, some graphic intensive and game apps will not work.


What if you swap over the CPU to a Core 2 Duo? Will later 64-bit OSX's install? Thanks!


Not really possible, Sorry ;-{
