"BROKE MY COMPUTER!"

December 29, 2012  |  By missjax528

 |  Version: Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Pros

ABSOLUTELY NONE!

Cons

I downloaded everything, it was going great, and then it restarted my computer automatically (as it was supposed to) and when it turned back on both my keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive. It is not a hardware problem, it is something internal that I cannot fix! I am so MAD because I had this computer for two days as a gift and now I have to tell them that I broke it.

Summary

I cannot even describe how mad I am right now! Your stupid fake software did something to my computer and it is unfixable! I am never downloading anything from this site ever again and I suggest that no one else does either!

"Easy to use, Love Notification Center"

August 18, 2012  |  By pdillon10

 |  Version: Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Pros

It is a minimal update from the last OS but I recommend getting it to stay up to date as well as to take advantage of some of its great new features. It is very easy to instal

Cons

I don't like how it does not come with updated versions of iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand.

"This is NOT Snow Leopard - it's just an update!"

August 12, 2012  |  By QuTi1

 |  Version: Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Pros

It is probably just dandy if you already have Snow Leopard installed.

Cons

This was a waste of time.

Summary

This was a total waste of time. In giant letters it says, "Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard for Mac." However, this is actually the upgrade for people who already have Snow Leopard.
:/

"Great but slower than 10.7.3"

March 20, 2012  |  By rohanshah2302

 |  Version: Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Pros

I just upgraded to lion a week ago and I found it faster and Snow Leopard was also quite fast compared to the rest of the rest of the OS's.

Cons

It is surely really quick in booting up and Lion the boot-up wasn't that fast as compared to Snow Leopard

Summary

Overall, it was great and I feel all the people in Leopard I suggest that you upgrade quickly.

"It is worth upgrading to Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8"

December 08, 2011  |  By sooners_niners

 |  Version: Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Pros

Everything just runs better and smoother that ii did before the upgrade. I was worried it would take a long time to upgrade, but it took less than an hour. I was also worried about the upgrade messing with my printer drivers, applications I already had etc., but there was no problem.

Cons

I did notice I had trouble getting garage band to load, it kept saying it could not find a file in the sound library, but after I restarted the computer a couple of times, it has now started to work, who knows, I'm not very good with knowing how computers work, so I can't tell you why this happened, but it did.

"10.6.8 won't boot with iHome media Keyboard"

June 25, 2011  |  By frank_fen

 |  Version: Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Pros

It's an OSX upgrade

Cons

Won't boot with iHome USB keyboard

Summary

You cannot use the iHome iConnect media Keyboard - if you try, you'll get a darwiln Kernel Panic and a restart message. Once you unplug the Keyboard from the USB port, all is well. I've heard a rumour that iHome is working on a new driver.... we'll see.
