So I have established that I have a Macbook 8.1 that apparently can run High Sierra. Problem is I can't download from app store because it says it requires 10.8.0 to perform that task.
The Macbook will be used by wife for mainly browsing, iTunes, word processing and other stuff. I have a PC with Linux and Hackintosh for all my heavy dev stuff so not worried about High Sierra running possibly slow but if it is dreadful I'll just update the RAM and possibly upgrade to an SSD.
I have been told that it might be a good idea to create a bootable DVD and install from that instead. So was wondering where I can get an official .iso (or .dmg?) of High Sierra or would you guys recommend taking it to Apple to do this?
