  • Best Answer:

    Yes, you must have at least Snow Leopard 10.6.6 installed to get to Lion 10.7.x. See Apple Support document SP629 online for Lion's tech specs. You can upgrade your 10.5.8 to 10.6.x with the $29 retail box package available at the Apple Store online or in your area - and all updates to 10.6.8 are online and free.
