Apple has a list of specs to run it. Looks like yours falls within it. Although some things will need other requirements like a webcam for photobooth or ichat. But you should be able to get by. Might be a bit slower than some Macs running it, but as long as you don't have 20 things going on at once, you should be fine. Go to an Apple store and try it out first though to make sure you like it.

What is the main benefit for upgrading?


with operating systems , it is only necessary to upgrade if you receive a notice that the current os( operating system) is no longer being supported ( no upgrades to eliminate problems )
an example here is the win 10 upgrade from a previous win 7 , vista etc
this up grade has conflicts with the installed os so it is better to get the win 10 program and install it in full rather than upgrade to win 10
Using mac os and you are happy and confident in the use of that version and there is no notice that that version will no longer be supported, then stay with what you know and is trouble free
however if you want more from the mac os consider buying the program and installing it complete rather than an up grade on the current base os
for advice on this sort of problem , go google and find forums on the subject and then make your decision or talk with a computer repair guy to get good information

How do I add macbook air memory


Macbook Air has a different memory set up. The memory is soldered on to the logic board when the unit is built. As far as I know there are no direct memory upgrades developed yet for the MacBook Air.
About your only option is to replace the logic board with one with 8 GB

How to upgrade my macbook pro to Yosemite


Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

Hi MerryAnn
As far as the macbook it's self goes there are no set service you need to carry out. The only component that actually needs changing after time will be your battery.

You need to regularly check for updates for the system. Also make sure you have the latest OS. You can do that under the apple drop down menu (top left)

Depending on the age of your mac you can always look at upgrading your memory or hard drive.

Other than that just look after it.
