    Upgrading to Snow Leopard in a School

    Hello,

    We've not upgraded for a bit and now we need to it's proving complicated! We want to upgrade to Snow Leopard on our Macbooks so we can install Mavericks however the licensing issues are proving to be a bit confusing. I don't seem to be able to find a license for Education that allows the OS to be installed on more than one computer. We only have two! Where can we buy it? How can this process be made simpler?!

    In theory you should be able too, however it has been too long since I did a Mac upgrade in a commercial/educational environment.

    Once you're running 10.6.8 you can upgrade to 10.9 Mavericks. There's also a new 10.9.1 post update with numerous bug fixes.
