    Can anyone guide me if this is even possible? I update my Mac whenever but my wife is obviously less diligent. I'm hoping to get her the most current OS if possible. She is running a 13 inch mid 2009 MacBook Pro.

    So what version is she currently running? Check under the Apple in the About This Mac box for the Info as to what is currently installed.
