I am not sure where my 10.6 disc is, I will have to dig it up as that is a 
minimum requirement for 10.7 &  10.8. My iMac update path leaped from 10.6 SL 
to 10.9 Mavericks. So I have downloads of 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, &  10.12.6. I 
have yet to move to High Sierra on my iMac.

It is something to consider as an upgrade project for the old MBP, but for 
now when I compare the 17” MBP with the 10.5” 512GB iPad Pro with regard 
to physical dimensions, and weight, along with the ability to fit in either 
my ThinkTank Retrospective, or Domke 803 bag the MBP loses the simple 
carry-on test.The iPad slips into either bag without any noticable weight 
penalty, and I can carry any of my Fujifilm mirrorless kit I choose to in a 
bag which passes as a ”personal item”.

If I am driving, that is a different matter.
