    Hello I am very new to the Mac, I trying to install the FCP trial, or the adobe pro premier trail I downlaoded a trial version of and when I try to installing it, it says."cant use version of the application final cut pro with Mac OSX"

    My mac is 10.5.7.

    The model is.. Macbook pro 17,
    model identifier is Macbook pro,1,2
    Processor name, Intel Core Duo
    SMC version 1.5f10


    Some one told me to buy the update here
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard

    But the problem is I dont live in the US and they dont ship to me, is there anywhere I can buy and download the update online? Unfortunitly I have a project due and cant wait for shipping.
    Will adobe o FLCP work with the Snow leopard? Or is my mac to old?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Look on eBay or the Apple Online Store of your country, if it has one, to get the 19 USD Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD.
    Adobe Premiere Pro and FCP X will work on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, no need to go for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, especially as your machine will not be supported by Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion anyway.

    Ive done so many searches online buy cant seem to find any place that allows you to buy and download it.
