The Intel Core Duo and Solo processors used in the first generation MacBooks and MacBook Pros offered no 64-bit support. These are now no longer supported by Apple, nor by app developers – makes sense after 10 years. But what do you do if you still have one lying around?

Well in the case of an old MacBook Pro Intel Core Duo 2.0 – 2.16 GHz, you can repurpose the computer for writing, programming and/ or dual booting Linux.

To get the most out of a MacBook Pro still running Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8), check out the list below for the latest compatible legacy 32-bit applications.

Unfortunately this recently included both Safari and Chrome browsers. Users of PowerPC devices can still benefit from the actively maintained TenFourFox project or the even older Classilla.

The purpose of this list is to maintain the most updated versions for useful software that a standard 32-bit Intel Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8) user might require.
