I recently bought a Kobo Ereader not knowing that my iMac is not compatible. I have a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X 10.4.11. I was told I need to upgrade to Snow Leopard which is not available in stores anymore. I ordered it online and when I tried to install it got the error message that I don't have enough Ram. I tried to get Ram at the Apple Store but was told that memory is no longer available for my model.
Any suggestions??

OWC should be able to provide what you need

Apple Mac Memory Upgrade Options: Easy Buying Guide, Free Install Videos. Memory backed by Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

owc or crucial for ram. get 2 gb for it and you will be fine. i have the same imac and snow leopard runs just fine on it and seems faster than tiger. check craigslist or ebay for a retail disc since the apple store no longer has them and the online apple store is out of stock with a 3 week wait to get one.
