Mac OS X We're certainly not done yet with Snow Leopard on OSNews! The operating system will be officially released tomorrow, but that hasn't stopped various news outlets from cranking out reviews of Apple's latest big cat. As usual, the reviews are fairly consistent: this latest release is the best yet. In addition, very welcome news for Tiger users: the Snow Leopard "upgrade" disk can upgrade Tiger installations too, and performs no checks to see if Leopard is installed.

Maybe I will upgrade from 10.4, even though the 64 bit extras won't help my three year old Core Duo Macbook. Now if only my superdrive wasn't broken.

If you have another Mac you can do a remote install.
Furthermore, you can easily replace the super-drive or use an USB one.
Regarding the 64bit thing, if it's a first generation MBP, you can replace the CPU as it's not soldered on the board. There are a lot of Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz CPUs out there (make sure you select the 667MHz version).
I've had the same problems with my Mac Mini and all the solutions above worked for it.
