Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you.

Yes, your Mac is powerful enough to handle Snow Leopard and latest iLife 11 i.e iPhoto 11, iMovie 11, iDVD 11 etc. You won't lose anything when you upgrade..But i'd recommend to backup your important files before upgrading.

Best Regards,
Ashik

Will I have to do anything special? Is it just put the disk in and go? (once I order it) I went with Mac because I am computer illiterate. My husband is worse and I will have to do this to his as well. FYI - I will be accepting your answer. His was purchased about 6 months after mine so we will be in the same boat.
Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Nope...Just burn your important files to a disc or copy them to a external hard drive, for safety. Upgrading is easy...Just put the disk in and follow the onscreen instructions. Your Mac will upgrade it automatically. Difficulty - 1/10

Best Regards,
Ashik

Do you need instructions to write files to CD ?

Are there any compatibility issues with my microsoft office 04. That is way to expensive to want to replace and I use it ALL of the time. and yes - please tell me the easiest way to backup my stickies, word, excel docs and photos
Expert:  Ashik replied 3 years ago.
Microsoft Office 2004 will work on Snow Leopard.

  • In Finder/Desktop, click on the File menu and select "New Burn folder"
  • This will create a new "Burn Folder" on your desktop.graphic
  • You can change the name of the burn folder (optional)
  • Double-click on the Burn folder icon to open the folder in a Finder window
  • Now, drag the files i.e your files, photos, documents etc into the burn folder's window. This will create a alias/shortcut in it.
  • On the burn folder's window you can see a button named "Burn" which is located on the top right.
  • Click on the Burn button. You will be asked to insert a blank disc.
  • So, insert a blank CD/DVD, provide "Disc Name" and in the "Burn Speed" option, choose a medium level speed like 8x or 12x
  • Then click on the burn button and you can see the burning process.
  • When the burning is finished, disc will automatically mount on the desktop.
  • Then you can eject it.

Let me know if that didn't worked...

Ashik

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
