    What RMan was saying is don't download it. Apple does not allow Downloading of any of the OS's. If you download Snow Leopard, it's piracy and against the law.

    It's only $29. And yes your Macbook will run it just fine. Just be sure to purchase it.

    The URL he provided was showing that illegal downloads of some Mac software contain a trojan that will hurt your system. If you purchase OSX that will not be an issue.

    If by Download you meant ordering the DVD, then sure, go ahead.

    I didn't know that there were pirated versions of SL.... I don't use pirated software anyway, and that's a good thing, too.

    you didn't understand


    i used the wrong words

    i mean should i upgrade my Macbook or stick to my 10.5

    does the new Snow Leopard make my Macbook faster ?

    coz my laptop had became slower in the last 3 months

    it takes a while when i drag anything to the Trash or to another folder and applications are taking a long time to open

    My Mac was super fast but now its slow as a Pc

    When the word Download is used, most people mean Download! Sorry.

    Snow Leopard is faster for sure but to me it sounds like you have other issues. Have you tried running Onyx and cleaning up the system? That might solve the speed issues and get it back to normal. Also run Disk Utility and check/repair the Hard Drive.

    Snow Leopard is very nice and most things are noticeably faster here compared to 10.5 Leopard, but if you upgrade, some of your issues might follow you over to 10.6 unless you do an Erase and Install.

    Do try Oynx and Disk Utility and see if things get faster before you do anything else.

    You should be doing these whether you plan on upgrading or not.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
