I bought an iMac 2008 and got it in the mail today - I'm loving it so far (my first mac btw!) and I was curious on upgrading it. It came pre-installed with mac osx 10.5.8. I want to get mountain lion, but I need to get mac osx snow leopard 10.6 first in order to get mountain lion. I heard you can call apple and get snow leopard really cheap, I searched around amazon and ebay and they're really expensive for no reason. So is that the appropriate approach of upgrades or are those the right order? Also, when I upgrade, do I lose any files and such? I don't mind since I don't have that much files anyways since I just got my mac and the ones I have I can backup on my external harddrive. Any suggestions is appreciated!
