I know this isn't the correct forum to be posting this in, but apple forums offer no support, and i just have been having a b*tch of a time trying to understand the answer to my question. I am currently on 10.5.8 on my early '08 macbook pro. I want to update in july to Mountain Lion but I can't even update to Lion because my OS doesn't currently support the stupid "app" store thing on mac. (Which I still don't understand why it's needed, but I digress..) Will I be able to buy a physical freakin' disc so I can finally get out of 10.5 or do I FIRST need to buy 10.6 SEPARATELY for full retail price, THEN purchase the newest version? I'm so confused and kind of pissed at Apple for not offering an easy way to update. It seems as if a lot of people are angry about this because if they missed out on a version update like I did, they now cannot update their OS. Just thought I would post here first since everyone seems to know more about things like this since the majority of us have macs.
