Help please! Can I upgrade my ibook 10.2.8 OS X to a higher version? If so how? If not, better to get a new computer? I was trying to install a broadband modem but requires OS of 10.3 or higher. I'm not computer savvy but can understand enough to get by, as long as it's plain English. I want to be able to use my laptop to access the internet, anywhere & anytime.
Thanks. :)

you can upgrade easily. i don't know if leopard is the best choice (10.5). if it were me, i'd go with tiger (10.4). all you have to do is purchase a retail OSX disc.

check out deals on ebay (http://computers.shop.ebay.com/items/Software__osx-tiger_W0QQ_catrefZ1QQ_flnZ1QQ_sacatZ18793QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em282)

Eh? Try just hooking all of the Internet connections together appropriately and then plugging the Ethernet cable into the iBook.

It should work without anything needing installed.
