Can I update a 2007 MacBook to work with the new OS?

Hi everyone,

I've used ifixit a couple times to replace my hard drive and fan and I love it.

I own a mid 2007 MacBook and I'm wondering if there's anyway I can still update it to be able to run the current OS and apps.

I know I would need to upgrade the RAM since I only have 512 MB right now...but would I also need a full logicboard replacement? A bit of a beginner at this, any advice appreciated, since the cost of a new Mac right now is so high, I'm wondering if I can keep this one going! I'm also attached to this Mac which is so much easier to open up and fix than the newer models.

Is this a good question?

According to this source you can update to the OS Version Mac OS X 10.7 Lion but not any further.

I think a lot of apps will run on it. But you would have to look.

I have also got an old Mac about 2007 and I use it with office and web browsing very fine.
