I have a Macbook 2.1 with an Intel Core Duo 2, 2 GHZ Processor and 1 GB of memory. OS X is 10.4.11 and I need to upgrade to 10.5 or better, as things like Google Chrome and Fire fox need 10.5 or above. I have read "What OS Disk Do I Need?" A Brief Overview but Ebay is very pricy?
Thanks

You either need Leopard (which seems to have a going rate of around $75 in the US) or you could skip Leopard and go for Snow leopard (this is around $40 for the OS alone - but going from Tiger straight to Snow Leopard is against the EULA I believe) So you'll need the Box set, which includes iWork 09, iLife 09 and Snow Leopard for around $150

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

I won't address the EULA, just say that the retail set sold by Apple will install on a machine running Tiger without issue.
Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 $29 USD
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.)

EDIT: Changed my mind and will ask, since this keeps coming up, for our resident lawyers.

In my non-lawyerly (engineer) reasoning, a EULA that requires purchase of an intermediate product that is no longer sold is no longer valid or inforceable. True, false or other?

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
