Will My Mac Support OS X Mountain Lion?


How I can tell if my Mac is going to support OS X Mountain Lion? I have a 2008 MacBook Pro 15 inch.

A 15 inch MacBook Pro from 2008 will be supported. OS X Mountain Lion requires a Mac with a 64 bit kernel. Here's a full list of models that will support OS X Mountain Lion.

  • MacBook 13" Aluminum from 2008 or any MacBook from early 2009 on
  • MacBook Pro 13" from mid-2009 on, MacBook Pro 15" & 17" from late 2007 on
  • MacBook Air from late 2008 on
  • iMac from mid-2007 or later
  • Mac mini from early 2009 and newer
  • Mac Pro from early 2008 on
  • Xserve from early 2009 and newer

This information may change between now and the release of OS X Mountain Lion.
