If you are running 10.6.x you need to buy Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store if your Mac can handle it. If you are running 10.7.2 or higher you can use iCloud (though some functions need Mountain Lion).
Your signature says you are running 10.8.2 - is this right? That is Mountain LIon...

10.6.x = snow Leopard. 10.7.x = Lion. 10.8.x = Mountain Lion.
10.7.2 is the absolute minimum requirement for iCloud; it's not available in the Mac App Store but can be bought by telephoning the number at bottom left of this page. You can purchase and download Mountain Lion from the Mac App Store. The requirements for Mountain Lion are given here:

It depends what you want to do: really, only you can judge that. It will give you access to iCloud and various facilities not available in Snow Leopard; on the other hand if you are running any old PPC programs such as Appleworks these will not run at all in Lion or Mountain Lion. If you have any programs you really depend on you should check their compatibility with Mountain Lion before proceeding. There is a useful website for that at
