    software for older Mac Mini

    Hi
    just bought a second hand Mac Mini and I want to get the latest software for it. It's a 2007 model and runs on Mac OS x. Can anyone tell me whether there is an update available, or whether it's possible to get the 2013 software (lion) on it. As I have an ipad it would be great to share stuff via icloud but at the moment that's cumbersome due to old software (same applies to Safari, which the computer tells me is an older version but can't work out how to update).

    thanks

    Martin

    After August 7, 2007, is a 2007 model, I think,to about March 2009 is the next model year…

    I am not positive, but, I think the latest update running is Lion 10.7.5 on those machines…

    It came out around about October 4, 2012…

    Maybe someone here knows more than I.


    This is what a mid 2007 looks like from behind..




    For updating, click on the apple in the upper left hand corner and see if there is any updates available…..


    My guess on getting M. Lion is you probably can't.

    Looking at this chart is how I determined this…OS X Mavericks compatibility revealed: Mac models running Mountain Lion |


    Again. I may be wrong if somebody else chimes in as I am not positive...
