I need to determine if my very old Macbook (2008) is salvagable. Apple has essentially made this laptop obsolete by coming out with new versions of the OSX. Unfortunately, I don't think I can upgrade to the new operating systems because this laptop doesn't have sufficient memory. That also means - I think - that I can't update to a newer version of Safari, and now the 5.0.6 Safari browser on this computer is no longer being supported by more and more websites. If it's possible to increase the memory in this laptop, I might be able to upgrade. Alternatively, if there was a different browser out there that would work on this laptop, and that is still current enough and supported by various websites, that might solve the problem also. I tried to download Firefox, but again, this laptop doesn't meet the requirements. Anybody at the lake an "expert" on Macs? I need to determine if I have any options, or if it's time to simply jettison my antique computer and buy new. Also, I know there are some Apple people who come to the lake from Guadalajara, and I think they visit the iShop place. Does anyone have contact info for them? Thanks. EDIT/UPDATE: I got through to Apple Support - didn't think they'd even take my call since I have no service agreement with them! - and they said if add additional RAM, I'll be able to upgrade to the new OS. So now I'll try to track down the folks who visit iShop.
