OS X - Upgrade to Mavericks?
If it is too old, it may only be upgradable to Lion OS X 10.7.5, not hardly worth a
jump off the Snow Leopard and Rosetta bandwagon of support for older quality
applications you may have already bought, and have useful relationship with...
See about Mavericks OS X 10.9.x here, along with links to applications in Support:
Your computer likely would need a RAM upgrade to near maximum capacity supported
for best function of both the latest release of Mac OS X, and any applications you'd run.
Also, the hard disk drive may also need to be replaced with a new larger capacity one.
There may be a Firmware update for your computer model, whichever exact one it is.

refurbished MacBook/Pro 13-inch mid 2010 from reputable reseller online, or
a MacBook Pro 13-inch 2012 (-without retina, +with optical drive) & UPgrade.
These come equipped to run Mavericks and should also handle Yosemite.
You can have the Store add RAM to the MB/Pro, in the order page online, as
the 13-inch non-retina is upgradable that way; or the Apple Store can add it.
The macbook/pro series has better graphics and cpu capabilities than the Air.
And the MB/Pro 13-inch w/o retina is a good value. Get optional AppleCare.
