    What is the Model ID of your MacBook? The model ID can be found by going to Apple Menu --> About This Mac --> More Info . . . > System Report --> Hardware Overview --> Model Identifier.

    Since your MacBook has a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor it likely has an ID of Macbook5,1 (late 2008) or Macbook7,1 (mid 2010). Since it has OS 10.5.8, it is probably Macbook5,1.

    Either model can be upgraded to OS 10.6 Snow Leopard.

    Once OS 10.6 is software updated to OS 10.6.8, and with a minimum of 2GB memory (or arbeitsspeicher), the MacBook can be upgraded directly to the latest OS: OS 10.10 Yosemite.

    For performance, you may wish to also consider increasing the MacBook's memory to 4GB. (4GB is maximum memory that is officially supported on MacBook5,1 or Macbook7,1. Note that up to 8GB can be put in Macbook5,1 and up to 16GB can be put in Macbook7,1, but only 4GB is "officially" supported by either model.)
