    Can it be done? My current version is OSX Leopard 10.5.8. Would I have to update my memory? I don't really know a lot about computers but I've done a bit of reading online and I think this is the reason why a lot of applications such as Skype no longer work on my computer.

    Here are the specs if that helps anyone

    Officially it cannot be upgraded to ML but unofficially it can be upgraded to run on ML using Hackerwaynes MLPF program over in the mountain lion forum. I've used that technique on a few late 2007 macbook 3,1's and early 2008 macbook 4,1's and it works rather well even on the GMA X3100 Gpu's. Might be worth looking into.
