All Mac OS X Snow Leopard users can easily upgrade to their operating system to get access to the new Mac App Store.

First, run Software Update. Go to the Apple menu on the top left of your screen and select Software Update. Then install the Mac OS X update so that your computer has Mac OS X 10.6.6 or newer. Once the installation is finished your computer will restart and the Mac App Store will appear in your dock. You can also access the Mac App Store by clicking on the Apple menu and selecting App Store.
