    I have a MBP 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. Am I able to download the Mac App Store? I have checked for updates and it does not show up. I hate the thought of my Mac becoming completely obsolete.

    What Mac OS X Version are you running? If you're unsure, you can check it by clicking the Apple in the Menu Bar and and choosing "About This Mac".

    Should have it as long as you are on 10.6.6 or later. If it's not there, there is some other major issue.

    You can't go from 10.5 to 10.6 via Software Updates. You need to buy Snow Leopard, since it's not an update, but rather a new release.

    Software update, upgrade--what's the difference?

    Should I just wait for Lion then or do I need Snow Leopard first?

    You can't get Lion without Snow Leopard, as Lion is only available through the Mac App Store, which you need Snow Leopard to access.
