iCloud and Snow Leopard?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Based upon what we know about iCloud will Lion be required or will Snow Leopard suffice? I'd like to run Lion. I currently have Core 2 Duo, which is the minimum, but who knows how well it will run Lion. Plus not all my apps are universal, so they wouldn't run under Lion. Don't have the money to buy a new copy of Office for example. Thanks for any insights.

The newest version of Office that can't run in Lion is Office 2004. That is seven-year-old software.

My question was about Snow Leopard and iCloud. Office was just an aside.

The technology behind iCloud is likely the same that powers Versions for Delta changes. Snow Leopard doesn't have this feature so it would be unable to manage the Delta changes necessary to run and online backup system where sending the least amount of data necessary is vital.
