Hi, do you have a few minutes?

JACUSTOMER-ljf49hdo- :

yes

OSXpert :

great

OSXpert :

Unfortunately, the only way to sync your iPad with your mac is to upgrade your system. Have you considered upgrading to Snow Leopard (10.6)?

JACUSTOMER-ljf49hdo- :

yes but I don't know how to do that-should I go to the Apple Store for this

OSXpert :

Well, you can go to the apple store to purchase the software. Fortunately, the installation is user-friendly, you can do that on your own when you get it. Hang on, I'll get you a link...

OSXpert :

Here you go...

OSXpert :

This is a link to Snow Leopard, you can buy it online or you can buy it at your local Fry's or Best Buy or similar.

JACUSTOMER-ljf49hdo- :

When I do this will it be a whole new operating system and my link to my WIFI in my house is gone or will the computer just upgrade and everything will stay the same

OSXpert :

it will only upgrade, all of your documents, software and settings should be the same

JACUSTOMER-ljf49hdo- :

Thank you so much, I'm 78 years old and not very "agile" with this stuff-but I love my MAC

OSXpert :

You're very welcome. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have more questions
