While I should have been able to update to 10.6, to 10. 8 at least, fot some 
reason that has not been possible. I have it right here next to my desktop 
and I haven’t been able to update macOS to 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.0, or 
10.11, while my 2010 iMac is running fine under 10.12.6.

The other issue is it is maxed out with 4GB DDR, and running PS CC + LR, and 
an updated OS is going to make things a tad asthmatic.

....but I can still run MTNW on it If I need to.

That is the real solution, but I really wouldn’t get much use out of a 
laptop these days. So it is the iPad Pro and a new desktop Mac for me. The 
steam driven MBP remains charged and used occassionally when the need, or 
inclination arises.
