    You may be able to upgrade your MacBook to OS X 10.7 Lion

    System requirements for OS X Lion and Mac OS X v10.6.8

    OS X Lion system requirements

    To use Lion, make sure your computer has the following:

    • An Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor
    • Mac OS X v10.6.6 or later to install via the Mac App Store (v10.6.8 recommended); you can install without Mac OS X v10.6 by using an OS X Lion USB Thumb Drive, available on the Apple Online Store
    • 7 GB of available disk space
    • 2 GB of RAM

    If your Mac does not meet these requirements, you will need to upgrade your Mac before installing Lion..
