If I have a macbook pro with OS X 10.5.8 can I update to mountain lion or do I need to update to snow leopard first? I'm not sure if I have leopard now or not.
I bought the computer in 2009 so I believe it is recent enough.
I have an iphone, ipod touch and ipad and would really like to connect all of these to make school easier and everything just more cohesive.
Please advise on the necessary steps to get mountain lion, if possible. The more detail the better.
Thanks for you help.
