Friends are able to use Preview on their macs (all newer versions). I am using Mac OS X 10.5.8 and software update says there are no updates. If I update will I be able to take notes on PDFs using Preview. Thanks!

Yes, updating your operating system will allow you to use Preview to take notes on pdf documents. See this Apple article on the features of Preview. Note that your MacBook can be updated only as far as Lion (version 10.7.4.) To get there you will need to purchase Snow Leopard (10.6.8 - available from Apple but you have to call them) and then download and install Lion. Best of luck.

    Thanks!

    FInally got around to calling, should be getting Snow Leopard in the mail soon.

    If any one else has this problem take note that you should call the Apple Store 800 MY APPLE and do not try to contact Apple Support (which I did at first).

    You are welcome, and I apologize I should have told you that in the first place.
