My Mac is quite old, one of the first Intel-equipped iMacs from 2006. Would that be recent enough to run Snow Leopard, as far as is currently known?
Oh, 3 years isn't old. My iMac is also a 2006 model, and it's running a Mac OS X Leopard & Windows 7 dual boot. I authorize DVDs, edit video, audio, do a lot of work multitasking, and it's up to the challenge every time. I will be purchasing Snow Leopard as soon as it is available.

Oh, and for the record, my iMac gets a 4.1 out of 5.0 performance rating on Microsoft Windows 7, and all I've ever added was another GB of RAM (2 GB total). So yeah, she'll still compete with the elite.

I just had a thought: Somebody should petition Apple to name OS X 10.7 "Sehlat".

Well there isn't a whole bunch of Big Cat names left we'll probably see OS X.7 Lion.

Wouldn't have paid $129, I'm happy with the performance of my 2007 iMac . $29 (and some student discount) is fine though.

Great price - I'll def upgrade. I also love how it takes up less space than Leopard.

I eagerly await OS 10.8 Ocelot and OS 10.9 Margay.

A great price, and it will actually IMPROVE my computer. Why does anyone still buy PC's anyway?
