QuestionA question for MAC OS users (update the OS) Pin
Joan M8-Jan-17 21:38

Hello all,

This weekend my mother in law asked me why suddenly YouTube stopped showing videos at full screen in her MAC.

I've never used one so I told her that the best we could do was going in front of it and trying to see what was happening.

At the end, she has Mac OS X 10.5.8 and it looks like it is so old that all the external services start malfunctioning with it's safari version.

I tried to install chrome, Firefox, opera, tor, Maxthon, and I don't remember if I tried with others, but all of them refused to install in that old OS version.

Given this is an old computer 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 8GB DDR3 RAM memory, I don't know if she should buy the update DVD or not. In the Internet I've read contradictory information about that: some say that it won't work with that computer and some say it will.

What do you recommend? should she buy the DVD? and in case that DVD should be bought... which one? I've seen a lot of them in the Apple store.

PS: she is only using that computer to navigate the internet, seeing painting YouTube videos... so it has not much sense changing the computer.

Thank you all!
