Can I install/upgrade to snow leopard on my imac from tiger, without using leopard
My imac is late 2006 model with processor 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and
Memory 1 GG 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.
Mac OS X version 10.4.11
I want to upgrade to snow leopard, without having to purchase a third party used leopard disc to install first. Apparently can't purchase leopard from apple store.
I would like to have all the software updated that came with my mac package.
Is it best to remove everything and install snow leopard?

You can upgrade straight to Snow Leopard from Tiger. You don't have to buy Leopard. It will update apps like Safari, Mail, and iCal, but won's update iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, and iWork apps because those are separate purchases. You would have to find iLife or iWork CDs somewhere else if you wanted to upgrade those because the new versions in the Mac App Store don't support Snow Leopard.
If you wanted, you could install Lion, which is the latest version your Mac will support. You would have to get Snow Leopard first, though. Lion is in the Apple online store for $19. It gives you a download code for the Mac App store instead of shipping a CD.
You may want to consider getting a new computer. You'll get the new iLife and iWork apps for free with a new Mac. Apple just updated the iMacs.
