Its had some difficulties because I can not upgrade anymore.  But today I went to my Diabetic Carelink site and can not get on it because I have to have OS 10. 8 or higher... very recent change on their part..  I am not eager to have to buy a new computer but want to use that site.  To down load the infor off my insulin pump and continuios gluc monitor.  Any thoughts or ideas bdesides buying a new computer.  Hate being forced into buying a new computer.

The earliest MBP that came with OS X 10.5.2 preinstalled is the early 2008 version and it can run the latest OSX with a few features that are unsupported. You'll first need to upgrade the MBP to OS X 10.6.6 ($19.99) at the very least to get the AppStore, from there you can then download the latest OSX (10.9 Mavericks) for free.
