10.5.8 upgrade


I'm currently running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on my MacBook. I'm actually trying to install the World of Warcraft but I can't cause my macbook version is too old. I need 10.7.3 or newer. Which version should I upgrade to to play this game? Am I supposed to buy 10.6 snow leopard then upgrade to maverick or some other version to play this game? I don't have a mac app store I can't download maverick.

  • Best Answer:

    To get access to the App Store, you need to upgrade to Snow Leopard (OS 10.6) and do "Software Update" (under "Apple Menu") to bring up to OS 10.6.8.

    Through the App Store you can then upgrade directly to any later OS (OS 10.7, OS 10.8, or OS 10.9).

    However, the maximum OS you can upgrade to depends on your MacBook's Model Identifier (found in "About This Mac" - "More Info" - "System Report").

    Model MacBook1,1 (which only has Intel Core Duo processor) can only go to OS10.6.
    Model ID MacBook2,1 through MacBook4,2 can go up to OS10.7.
    Model ID MacBook5,2 can go up to OS10.9.

  • Your MacBook will support up to Mac OS X Lion, 10.7.5. To play WoW, you will need to upgrade. You will have to purchase Mac OS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, and then download Mac OS X Lion from the App Store upon upgrading (if it is still available, it should be)
