Hi, I'm trying to install icloud on my wife's computer so it will sync pictures and contacts with her new iphone.  The computer is happy and stable running snow leopard (great program, I miss it.) But icloud doesn't run on snow leopard.  I went to the app store and snow leopard isn't there anymore.  I tried to download Mavericks and the store robot quickly told me that it can't be installed on her macbook, even though it seemed to me that it fit the system requirements. 
Maybe there's a way to get icloud running on computers at are using 10.6.8, but since icloud is built into the OS, I haven't be able to find one.  We just finished building a really nice contacts book on her computer and were getting ready to transfer to her phone prior to activating it, but we're stymied.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

If it won't install Mavericks, Mountain Lion won't run on it either.
To check the model number hold down the option/alt key, go to the Apple menu and select System Information.
MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) model number 5,1 or higher
MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) model number 3,1 or higher
Your Mac needs:
OS X v10.6.8 or OS X Lion already installed
2 GB or more of memory (More is better - 4 GB minimum seems to be the consensus)
8 GB or more of available space
You might be able to install Lion.
