    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

    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.
