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.

Apple only support a machine for about three years... Though, my late 2008 MacBook Pro is still supported ;)

That said my mission critical MacBook Pro is the old 2007 model still running Tiger! It works an absolute treat, and I don't want to change anything.
