    I'm running a 17" Power Book with Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5. Can I go straight to El Capitan or do i need to upgrade elsewhere first?

    thanks for the help!

    PowerBooks use PPC processor chips not Intel, so none of them will run El Capitan. In fact, I do not know of any PowerBooks that will even run 10.7.5. OS 10.5.8 was as far as they supported.

    Are you sure you have a PowerBook?

    EDIT: Assuming you have a Mac laptop that supports El Capitan, then here is a Apple link:

    No, you can upgrade to El Capitan immediately.
