    13" Mid-2007 MacBook

    OS X version 10.7.5

    2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    SSD boot drive
    __________________________________________________________________

    That's what I have and I'd like to update/upgrade OS, but I think I am not allowed anything beyond 10.7.5.

    Am I limited and is it due to age/model of the machine?

    10.7.5 is the latest OS X version supported by your MacBook.

    You can find complete specs for your MacBook on EveryMac.com.

    I asked the same question today

    I was told 10.7.5 (lion) is the limit. But, you can add an extra memory for a total of 3 GB. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...

    You are correct - your Macbook will not use more than 3GB of RAM installed.
    You CAN go to 2 x 2GB for a total of 4 GB physically installed, where you might measure a small increase in performance because of a matched pair of RAM sticks - but the system will only use 3GB of that. Speed increase from a matched pair is probably not noticeable in real world use - but is a choice for you, too. I'm sure you already have good speed from your SSD. 3GB would be your last enhancement for your Macbook.
