    Unhappy upgrading my 10.6.3 system
    Is it possible to install the lion on my 10.6.3 system. I just upgraded to the Lepoard and would like the lion but cannot afford to purchase another computer.

    If you can run Snow Leopard, you most likely can run Lion as well. But just to be certain, tell us what sort of Mac you have and we'll tell you definitively..

    Thank you for responding to my post! I just discovered that the newly upgraded Lepoard has upgraded my system to a 10.6.8 system. I have a MaxBook Pro with 2.4 GHz and a 2 BG l067.

    FYI...10.6.8 is Snow Leopard.

    OK yeah, you can indeed run Lion. But I would recommend upgrading your RAM to 4 or even 8GB for maximum performance.

    How do I go about upgrading my RAM and GB? Just go to the MAC store near me?

    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    For starters Ann do not go to Apple unless you are made of money, and I mean made big time.

    Suggest a Mac specialist such as OWC. Select your MBP from this link and order another 2GB> They also have videos on memory installation:-


    Memory for MacBook, MacBook Pro 2GB, 4GB, 8GB & Now 16GB - OWC Certified RAM for Apple Mac with Lifetime Warranty
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Wow!
    I've been spending a fortune over the years for Mac products and thought the only place to purchase them was at the local Mac Store. Now, be specific, what exactly do I need and will I be able to install the memory? Don't I have to purchase Lion from the Apple Store?

    What are Trackbacks?
