- 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)
- Xserve (Early 2009)

More information about upgrading to Mountain Lion can be found from the link above.

I made the cut with a 2009 Mac mini, but it's a shame they cut a lot of Macs that were fine with Lion. I guess they are just "vintage" now. Rolling Eyes

yes and no in testing people found that apple rigged the system requirements because they where able to install it on a core duo machine and it worked just fine apple just wants people to upgrade to get the best experience possible

And yet Windows 8 will be good to go on every Intel-based Mac...

Dang! I make the cut for ML but I don't for airplay mirroring. The main thing I was looking forward too. I'm only gonna upgrade if I hear ML is more efficient now from a trusted source who uses older minis. I think SL will become a collectors item.
