    Max upgrade for my 2007 imac and 2007 MBP
    I looked and wasn't able to find the answer.

    What is the latest OS I can upgrade my 2007 iMac and MBP ?

    They have 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    You're probably there already with Lion (as your signature reveals).

    The 2007 MBP is probably limited to Lion. An exact model would nail that down, but that's likely the answer

    The iMac is probably actually a "late 2006" model, as there is no 2.16GHz 2007 iMac, and if I'm correct then that also is limited to Lion, so essentially you're done. Lion is no longer supported, so it will not receive security updates going forward.

    As the owner of two 2.16GHz MacBooks, I appreciate the interest in keeping these going, but neither of them are fit to be anyone over the age of 6's main computer in the year 2015. You could add an SSD drive to them to perk them up a bit, but they are becoming increasingly obsolete and unsafe, and probably aren't worth the investment. I plan on adding SSDs to mine and giving them to writer friends who will be using them, essentially, as typewriters with email capability.

    Your iMac can be upgraded to Lion and the MacBook Pro to El Capitan. You should, however, max out memory for both machines when upgrading.

    10.7.5 on the iMac. 10.6.8 on the MBP. Technically they are both 2006 model's. Since both were released in 2006.

    Yuck, I missed that the MacBook Pro was released in 2006. You're right, he's limited to Snow Leopard.

    Sadly flyby getting on for ten years old puts 'em in the dinosaur age computer speak. Getting time to lash out.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Good deal. After seeing your post I thought I misread a detail in the original post.
