My macbookpro came with Tiger 10.4.11
Nope. You pretty much have to do a clean install (and the same would be true of the Mac Boxed Set, there is no direct upgrade from 10.4 to 10.6).

So, just make a backup using SuperDuper. Do your clean install. When it's finished, it will ask if you would like to run the Migration Assistant. Do it. Then, hook up your external HDD and Migration Assistant will pull all of your docs/data and settings over. What I would *not* recommend is to bring over all of your apps, as many will be outdated and could potentially cause issues with 10.6.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
