    Yes, you can buy it, stick the disk in and upgrade. Upgrading the OS is very easy for Macs :)

    All you have to do is put the disk in, agree to the set up and wait. It takes a little bit of time but after your computer will have all the same settings and files and programs still on it, but i suggest doing a back up just incase. if you have problems with it getting stuck on the grey screen with the apple put in the application disk that came with the computer and it should fix it

    Awesome. Thanks for the input.

    Does any one have a link to a step by step tutorial thread on how to safely back up a system before performing this OS X upgrade?
