Hi there

I have an early 2006 Macbook i.e. the first intel Macbooks that came out with the 32-bit intel core duo, NOT the later 2006 ones with the 64-bit intel core 2 duo.

I installed Snow Leopard on it when it first came out and it had awful stuttery video playback issues; video playback previously on Leopard was fine. People in various forums reported similar issues with Snow Leopard and 32-bit core duo Macs, so I downgraded back to Leopard.

Now that Snow Leopard has reached what? 10.6.8? I was wondering if anyone knows if this issue has been addressed and if video playback works with Snow Leopard on 32-bit core duo Macs? or has anyone got a heads up on any other issues that would mean I should probably stick with Leopard. I noticed I saved some disk space upgrading to Snow Leopard. I'd like to upgrade due to some software requiring 10.6+ but not if this video issue still exists.

QUOTE Thanks
