    I used a Mac OS X 10.6.3 CD-ROM and then Apple online downloads to bring my MacBook up to 10.6.8.

    I now want to upgrade to Mac OS 10.7 Lion. Can I do that from Apple's website or do I have to order another CD-ROM specifically for OS 10.7? (I can't find a download on Apple's website for 10.7.)

    Thanks.

    My computer's specs:
    13.3" MacBook laptop (first with the Santa Rosa chip—November 2007)
    2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (Intel-based Mac, 64-bit processor)
    Intel GMA X3100 Chipset model
    Mac OS 10.6.8 (as of July 5, 2013)
    4 GB of SDRAM memory
    144 MB VRAM (video RAM)
    Color LCD monitor with 1280 x 800 resolution
    Depth: 32-bit color
    120GB hard drive

    You will need to call Apple to buy Lion through the App Store. They'll give you a redemption code to get it but it's not otherwise available, and your computer can't run Mountain Lion.

    Apple does not offer it direct in the App Store any longer, but you can call 1800MYAPPLE and they will sell you a code ($19.99) you can enter in the App Store to get (download) Lion.
