I have an old white MacBook OS X v10.4.11 (with a 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor). But because a lot of new stuff doesn't run on it, like my new IPod nano, last Itunes version, last Skype version or Spotify (just to name a few), I wonder if it's possible to UPGRADE to a more recent version like 10.5 or even 10.6. Can I do that or it's absolutely impossible? Thanks for all the help!

According to the information you provided and comparing it to MacTracker, you can't go above 10.4.x with that machine.

Not true.

MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 1.83 13" Specs (Late 2006, MA699LL/A, MacBook2,1, A1181, 2121) @ EveryMac.com
Pre-Installed MacOS: X 10.4.8 (8N1108)
Maximum MacOS: X 10.7.5*
Details: *This system can run the last version of OS X 10.7 "Lion," if upgraded to at least 2 GB of RAM. However, although it has a 64-bit processor, it has a 32-bit EFI and is not capable of booting into 64-bit mode. It does not support "OpenCL" either. Please also note that OS X Lion is not capable of running Mac OS X apps originally written for the PowerPC processor as it does not support the "Rosetta" environment.
