    Upgrade Mac Mini from OS X 10.4.2
    Mac noob here.

    I just bought a second-hand Mac Mini with a fresh re-install of OS X 10.4.2. I would like to upgrade it to OS X 10.6 or higher. store.apple.com has confusing information about Lions and Tigers and Bears (oh, my!), but I don't understand what product I need to buy and install to achieve my goal.

    Is there a way to upgrade to 10.6 or higher? If so, how?

    Specs:
    4GB Mac Mini 2012, 13" MBA, 15" MacBook Pro OSX 10.7, 32 GB iPhone 3GS, iPad2 64gb 3G
    Hopefully some not quite as confusing upgrade info for you here
    http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/os-...-overview.html

    Give that a read and if you still need help post your Mac specs.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    You're post is confusing as well...since you did not tell us what model Mac-Mini you have.

    Mac-Mini's have been around since 2005. There have been 22 different models...so it's difficult to guess which one you have.
