I have a MacBook 2,1 mid-2007 model with a 2.16 GHz Intel Core2 Duo processor, 3GB of RAM and 500 GB storage with 300GB still available.
I was using this Mac to submit apps to the AppStore but for some reason I am not able to submit apps now because the minimum requirement is Xcode 5 and all I have is XCode 4.3.
In order to download Xcode 5 I need Mountain Lion 10.8 and I am currently running 10.7.4. I am not able to download 10.8 because my model is not one of the supported models.
Is there any way to install it without replacing the notebook entirely? That makes no sense to me to purchase another Mac when I have a completely healthy one. Is there some hardware upgrades I could make to make the install still proceed?
