Hi all i am trying to upgrade to allow window office to be added to the mac? Can you please confirm the exact update that i will require from the mac store? The mac has the following spec. 1.83 ghz intel core duo. Memory 512 mb ddr2 sdram? Hope this makes sense?
1. This means you can only upgrade as far as Snow Leopard. You can buy it on DVD from most Mac dealers for $30.
2. You SERIOUSLY need to add RAM to that machine if you want decent performance out of Microsoft Office (or anything else). I'd suggest maxing out at 2-3GB. Ask the dealer you buy the Snow Leopard disc from about it.
One thing to watch out for in buying Snow Leopard is that you get the retail disk set. I say this because a lot of people seem to use eBay as their first source, and with the recent Lion release I can imagine that OEM OS 10.6 disks will be abundant. These will NOT install on your MacBook.
Save yourself the hassle and buy direct from Apple.
