Out in the Snow

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I am guilty of hang­ing on to my early 2008 white MacBook (which I love). It’s had quite a few re­pairs and I’ve in­creased the mem­ory so it’s been run­ning very well on Snow Leop­ard for ages. I also have an iPhone 5s; my hus­band has an iPad and we have an Ap­ple TV.

My printer broke yesterday and, af­ter do­ing ex­ten­sive re­search, I de­cided on the one I want to get as a re­place­ment. Then I sud­denly re­alised that it won’t run on 10.6.8. I’ve put up with be­ing un­able to use iCloud and hav­ing er­ratic sync­ing with the iPhone as I wanted to stay in my safe zone – but is it past time to buy a new MacBook or a MacBook Air? And, if so, how will I cope with the many changes in the OS? Or maybe I should just look around for any printer which will run Snow Leop­ard?

What shall I do? Joan Fletcher
