  • If you did, it would kill your MacBook. The white MacBook is too old and it would screech to a halt in terms of performance and speed.

    Apple notes that OS X El Capitan runs on the following Mac categories:
    iMac (Mid-2007 or newer)
    MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, Early 2009 or newer)
    MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
    Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
    Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
    Xserve (Early 2009)
