I'm using a 2007 Mac mini which runs on OS X Tiger 10.4.11. Can I upgrade my OS to any higher version? If yes, how can I do so, where can it be done, and will I be charged for it?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    According to the mid-2007 Mac Mini has a Core 2 Duo processor.  Click the apple in the left corner of the menu bar, About This Mac and see what processor you have.  If you have the Core 2 Duo you can upgrade to Lion, 10.7.5, if you have at least 2 GB ram, though it runs better with 4 GB, and 7 GB free space on the hard drive.


    Otherwise you can only go to Snow Leopard, 10.6.8.  In any case you will need to purchase Snow Leopard from the Apple on-line store for $20, install, on-line update to 10.6.8, and then if you can go to Lion call Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE and purchase a code to download Lion from the App Store.
