My macbook pro I've been using for all these years has finally pooped out and now I'm in search of a another one. The only thing is I don't want to purchase another old one. Now they're all newer and the OS has changed. The ones that I can afford come with the OS High Sierra, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to install my Acrobat X pro onto a laptop running this OS. If you know if it will or will not be compatible, please let me know? Thanks so much guys.

Thanks for the respond. Would you know or advise on the best or most stable OS for Acrobat X? I need to resolve this problem real soon because I feel lost without my computer and my Acrobat program.

Acrobat X is not supported on High Sierra but it does run. It works just fine for the most part, you may find that some OS level integrations don't work due to the interfaces on macOS changing but those can easily be worked around.

That said, upgrade to DC and get a subscription. It's absolutely worth it.

Let me add one thing to what Joel said: The biggest problem with a combination of old Acrobat and new operating system (it does not matter if we are talking Windows or macOS here) is that when something all of a sudden does not work anymore, it's impossible to say if this is due to a new incompatibility (e.g. OS upgrade), or a configuration change. The latter can - if you know what was done - very likely be reversed, with the former, you are very likely out of luck. However, to find out which one you are dealing with may be impossible, based just on the symptoms.
