    I have a new to me Macbook Pro 5.5, so mid 2009 to 2010 model (how can I find out exact date of manufacture?)

    It's all been wiped, I'm ready to roll but I believe that as I don't have an OSX asociated with my Apple ID I can't just install Mountain Lion without buying it (it was on here an that's what it wants to install)

    So first Q:

    What OSX is best for me? Going to be using it for live music and web browsing.

    Mountain Lion or Snow Leopard?

    I am partial to Snow Leopard myself, mainly for the ability to run PowerPC based programs as well as Intel.

    Check out and use their Ultimate Mac Lookup tool to find out exactly what you have.
