Can I update this A1181 OS to run iBook Author (min OSX 10.11)

I was given a MacBook A1181 running 10.7.5. I’m an author who only needs this MacBook to run one program, iBooks Author. iBooks Author will only run on an Apple laptop or desktop with a minimum OSX of 10.11

The serial number is W8809UAQ0P0. I’m attaching the screenshot from EveryMac

Can I update this MacBook to the minimum OSX of 10.11? If not, what is the oldest MacBook I can buy used that will run 10.11? I’m on a tight budget and this is the only software I need access to.

Thank you.

Sadly, your current MacBook does not have a clean BIOS (EFI) to run any of the newer OS’s. The MacBook5,1 or MacBook5,2 series would met your requirements as being the oldest MacBooks which can support OS-X El Capitan 10.11.x. I would recommend looking for a newer model as maintenance support for El Capitan will be ending this year. If you can see if you can find one of these:

And moving to MacOS Sierra (10.12) this will also allow you to run more resent apps as well.
