Mac OS X Ars Technica is reporting that certain 64bit Mac models won't be able to run Mountain Lion. The problem is the graphic card drivers; these are still 32bit, and Apple is unwilling to update them to 64bit. A 64bit kernel can't load 32bit drivers, so that's that. Apple has a list of supported models on their Mountain Lion upgrade page, so you can easily check if your computer is capable of running Mountain Lion.

It's one thing, but in my experience, the greatest annoyance with owning a recently obsolete Mac is that practically all developers immediately jump to the latest release and produce software that doesn't run on older versions.
