Thanks very much. Now another question--would I really need to go to snow leopard. I'm really pretty happy with Leopard,and I don't want to invest $ in an older machine, when I might be upgrading to newer one soon.
We have a 2007 MacBook Pro with 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo and recently upgraded from the earlier leopard OS to Snow Leopard and OS X Lion. We also upgraded from 2GB to 6GB RAM, just to improve operation of the 17" laptop. This was all done to access iCloud for syncing our iPhone 4S's.
I would rather have my old "unsmart" phone and the old original OS, but my wife needs her 4S. I have years of documentation created with MS Word, Accel, and Power Point, but none of it can be opened on the laptop because "PowerPC applications are no longer supported." Also, the MacBook Pro operates at a snails pace compared with the old Leopard OS.
