    To upgrade from OS X 10.5.8, you must first buy Snow Leopard.


    Online (US):

    Online (UK):

    Elsewhere: call the phone number in the Apple Online Store


    Apple's price is $19.99 or £14.00. It is not available to download from any legitimate source.


    Make sure your system meets Snow Leopard's requirements:


    Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" System Requirements


    To install Snow Leopard for the first time, you must have a Mac with:


    • An Intel processor
    • An internal or external DVD drive, or DVD or CD Sharing
    • At least 1 GB of memory (RAM) (additional RAM is recommended)
    • A built-in display or a display connected to an Apple-supplied video card supported by your computer
    • At least 5 GB of disk space available, or 7 GB of disk space if you install the developer tools


    After you install Snow Leopard you can decide if you want to upgrade OS X to the latest version, Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion is available in the Mac App Store, which is available to you after upgrading to Snow Leopard.

    Click here and buy 10.6. If your computer has a Core 2 Duo(not Core Duo) or better CPU and isn't capable of running 10.8, phone the Apple Store and order a download code from 10.7.
