I go to the download now bit, and it takes me to the app store, I go to download now and it takes me to a new screen, but no mention of Snow leopard or anything. Just tried it again, and it goes to the "view in app store" to the "upgrade now". Then it just goes back and forwards. By the way, it goes to Mountain Lion. Cant find a purchase for snow Leopard, which you need to get Mountain Lion

Rob, if there aren't any Mac users here to help, go to an Apple store.

I don't know what you're doing wrong. Just click "add to cart" and follow all the prompts to buy. There's also a "chat now" blue button where I assume you speak to someone.

Danz, maybe you have a later update than me, but i just spent about 15 minutes going over the whole page looking for a blue button. Blowed if I can find it.

I'm only on 10.5.8. Click add to cart. click check out now. checkout as guest....click continue. fill out your details. click continue...and on it goes. The blue 'chat now" button has gone. I assume live chat is offline now. Maybe try again tomorrow during normal hours. It's not that hard.

Not sure what apple send. It says "free shipping" so I assume they send out a box. But these days most software is a digital download. Printing manuals and burning disks are becoming a thing of the past.

Open the "App store" within the mac(not iTunes, there is a mac AppStore). Check for updates from the top menu of te App Store, right hand side. If that doesn't work go to the little apple symbol on the top left of the screen and click "Software Update" It will update to the newest version.
