Admit it, Mac heads, youâ€™re excited for Mountain Lion. Heck, we know some of you even couldnâ€™t resist the lure of the Gold Master release, knowing full well youâ€™d have to go through the tedious install process again once Mountain Lion officially goes public.
But for the rest of you Mac users out there, specifically those with an aging Mac, we might have some disappointing news for you. Apple has finally published the full list of compatible Macs with Mountain Lion, and those with at least a 6 year old Mac – depending on what type of Mac, of course – will be left in cold as far as the latest OS X version goes.
Check out the list of Mountain Lion compatible Macs below:
Also, if youâ€™re a Snow Leopard user like me, youâ€™ll be happy to know you donâ€™t necessarily have to upgrade to Lion to enjoy OS X 10.8. You just need to be running on the latest Snow Leopard version (10.6.8) to be eligible for Mountain Lion.
So, your Mac good to go?
No? Well, then itâ€™s prolly time for you to upgrade, and with the new all-time low pricing of the MacBook Air, Appleâ€™s ultraportables are looking oh so temptingly good as a viable option.
Mountain Lion is scheduled to hit the Mac App Store later this month with a retail price of just $19.99.
