If you have 10.8 on that Macbook, you will be able to download 3.10.6. When you click the install button it will say you are unable to run the current version but you can download the last compatible version. I do not know if this is supported by the App Store in earlier OS X versions but you could easily check by moving the currently installed version to the trash (don't empty it) and then try to download the app from the App Store again. If it doesn't work, just move the copy out of the trash back to your Application folder.
