I purchased my MacBook Pro in August 2010. It has Mac OS X v. 10.6.8.  I have not been able to update iTunes for a long time and now my new printer will not work with this laptop.

 

Do you think I should 1) buy the newest OS X (v. 10.10 "Yosemite", I believe) so that I can update software and use my printer or 2) buy a new laptop, probably a Macbook Air.

 

Thank you.

To my knowledge you do not need to buy apple OS updates you can just update the computer. If you are having issue why not just restore the computer to when you brought it.  I do not know much about Macs but I'm sure someone will be along to help you

Hi JohnWJ,

 

I did not think about restoring my computer to its original--thanks. And I'll get on the Apple site to see if I can update for free. Thanks you!
