Can you help me update OS X?

My Mac is (and has been) prompting me to update software. Every time we get past the "Agree" or "disagree" prompt, the window tells me it can't be installed on "Macintosh HD." There is 300-some GB of space. Any ideas what's going on? [more inside]

Which OS X version is best for a MacBook Pro from 2009?

I have a MacBook Pro from 2009, with a 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo and 8 GB RAM. I am running Mavericks on it, but I find that it can be slow when it is accessing the disk a lot, and it runs hot. It meets the minimum spec for Mavericks but I am thinking that I am over-stretching it. I am planning to upgrade the 500GB HD to a 1TB hybrid. Would this be better able to run Mavericks or should I think of stepping back to something like Snow Leopard when I change the hard disk?

Buy a new mac or upgrade the OS?

My early-2007 Macbook Pro is still going strong, besides the fact that it gets very hot and that the battery is kaput. The biggest problem I have with it is that the OS (v.10.5.8) is far enough out of date that I can't update most of my software, and have a hard time acquiring new software. Is it worthwhile to upgrade to the latest version of OS X, or would I be better of just springing for a new mac? [more inside]
