I currently have a Macbook with Snow Leopard 10.5.8 and want to upgrade to 10.6 and then Mountain Lion in order to be able to install Apps...etc. Currently there are no updates available to me when I go to software update?

    10.5.8 is Leopard. 10.6.8 is Snow Leopard and is a paid upgrade.

    Whilst Apple have withdrawn Snow Leopard from their stores, you can still get it from Apple by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE (if you are in the USA) and they will supply the SL DVD for $30.  You can also purchase the code to use to download Lion from the same number.

     

    If you are outside the US call your national Apple Helpline:

    If you're in the UK, use this number: 0871 508 4400

     

    When you have installed it, run Software Update to download and install the latest updates for Snow Leopard.
