HERE WHEN YOU ADD "RECOMMENDED OS: DOES IT MEAN THAT I CAN GET ANY OF THOSE FOR MY MAC OR I HAVE TO GET A NEWER COMPUTER?
Expert:  Mac Tech replied 5 years ago.
You will need to obtain a newer Mac if you wish to run a newer version of OS X (10.5 - 10.7). The newer the Mac, the more likely it will run the latest version of OS X.
