With the release of Mountain Lion just around the corner, now would be the right time to check if your Mac qualify for Mountain Lion? because some of the other systems won’t, here are the hardware models that will support Mountain Lion:
- iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
- MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
- MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
- MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
- Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
- Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
Mountain Lion requires 2GB RAM or more and 8GB of free hard drive space
You can upgrade from OS X Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) as well as Lion (OS X 10.7). Upgrading will not wipe away any user accounts or user data you have installed on your computer. For the most part, you can upgrade, and then pick up working wherever you left off.
OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 will be offered for sale in July 2012 for $19.99.
