Hello all, and Happy New Year,

I have been asked for help with an iMac of about 2005 vintage. It runs OSX
version 10.5.8; hardware: Intel Core 2 Duo 2GB Ram, so capable of accepting
later OS versions. The user's problem is that the most up to date Safari for
that OS version now baulks at many websites. Flash Player and any reasonable
modern browser fails to run or fails to cope with Flash-heavy sites.

The installed OSX version will not communicate with Apple's Appstore (or
whatever the damned thing is called. Although Apple no longer charge for OS
upgrades, the only way to do so is by buying a DVD for £20 or more. Does anyone
have access to a legal OSX 10.6 DVD which can start this machine on the upgrade

Thanks in advance.


PS I dislike using the word "upgrade" in this context. It is marketing nonsense
and not technically meaningful.
