    Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard help?
    First post.

    Well I bought an iPod Touch 4g earlier today, only to realize that I couldn't run iTunes 10.1 on Tiger, great.

    One thing lead to another, and I decided to upgrade to Snow Leopard. I bought the $30 disk, started the installer up, and apparently I don't have enough ram on this computer.

    How much ram would be appropriate, and how much money would this cost? Serial number is W8602A8XU2N and I'm on 10.4.11.

    Thanks

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    You need a minimum of 1GB. You have a 17" iMac (2006) with a 1.83GHz Core Duo. I'd actually recommend maxing it out to 2GB before you go over to 10.6.

    2GB will run you around $45, depending on where you get it from (I'd recommend Crucial.com). You could go with a single 1GB module and have 1.5GB, but you're going to find that your experience is much better with 2GB under 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!

    Alright, thanks! Just to be sure, am I looking at the correct type? Apparently the 512 mb one I have in is "DDR2 SDRAM" at 667 MHz.
