These Macs Reportedly Can't Run OS X Mountain Lion

By Kyle Wagner on at

OS X Mountain Lion looks like it's going to add a bunch of neat stuff for Mac users. But some of you are going to be left out in the cold. Here's the list of Macs that Mac Generation claims can run OS X Lion, but not Mountain Lion:

• Any Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook from late 2007 – late 2008 (Model Numbers: MB061*/B, MB062*/B, MB063*/B, MB402*/A MB403*/A MB404*/A, MB402*/B)

• The Mid-2007 Mac mini (Model Numbers: MB138*/A, MB139*/A)

• Late 2006 polycarbonate iMac (Model Number: MA710xx/A)

• The original early 2008 MacBook Air (Model Number: MB003LL/A)

The reason, apparently, is that OS X Mountain Lion doesn't support Intel's GMA 950 and x3100 chipsets. If you've got one of these machines, odds are you've known this was coming. But time's finally up: Your Mac's officially dead to Apple. [Mac Generation via Cult of Mac]
