Hi,

I'm using a MacBook5,1 with OS X 10.5.8. Its a 2008 model but in perfect condition. I only want to upgrade the OS as the new Itunes and Ipods are not compatible with the OS X 10.5.8.

please help.

Your MacBook can be upgraded to the most current Mac OS (10.8.3).

What you need to do is:

- Purchase an OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) install disk (at the Apple Online Store only).
- When you get the disk...install OS 10.6.
- Once installed...make sure you have at least OS 10.6.6 (you may need to use software update via the Apple menu)
- Now you have access to the Mac App Store...then you can download & install the latest Mac OS...10.8.3

HTH,
