It was suggested to me that I upgrade my OS to Snow Leopard so I could update to the newer version of Itunes so I could use it with my son's new Mini Ipad.  I just received OSX SL 10.6.3 and updated my computer.  Now I can't access Safari because it says the version is not supported.  Do I need to upgrade the OS again, or is there a newer version of Safari somewhere?  I am getting tired of what feels like chasing my tail.  How do I just get my computer updated so I am not constantly chasing the newer version of one thing that affects everything else on the computer?

    See if your machine will run that OSX, and what other upgrades you will need to do.

    You will need a OSX MTN lion to run Safari 6

    Run the Software Update pane of System Preferences, and open Safari directly from the Applications folder.

    How do I just get my computer updated so I am not constantly chasing the newer version of one thing that affects everything else on the computer?

     

    Switch to Windows 7 PC, ten years of no changes and no upgrade games.

     

    Windows 7 Pro+ even runs XP programs.

     

     

    Seriously, run Software Update under the Apple menu, it will bring you up to 10.6.8 and Safari 5.7.1, iTunes 11.

     

    However Safari 6 is only on OS X 10.7 and 10.8, so since because of that, you should switch to Chrome or Firefox for 10.6.8

     

    Your machine is likely too old to run 10.8, even if it can, it likely will be slow and require more RAM etc.
