I've had a macbook for about 4-5 years, and haven't been keeping up with the OS upgrades, apparently. It has been working perfectly, so I didn't really think it was necessary.
I just got an iPhone 4, and when I tried hooking it up to my computer it told me I needed to install the latest version of iTunes. I downloaded the installer, and then it told me the software wouldn't work with my OS.
I went to the Apple store and they told me I needed to buy the whole Snow Leopard Pack for $129 since I was still running Tiger.
My computer has been running fine with Tiger, and I don't use a ton of different software. I mostly just use it for web surfing, watching movies, playing music, and recording through Audacity. I'm not sure I would notice an upgrade running the new OS.
I don't need to sync my iPhone to my iTunes library, I just want to put some of my existing songs on to it. Is there any way to do this without shelling out the cash for Snow Leopard?
