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.

RE[2]: It's support that matters

Member since:

why do you automatically assume they'll drop support for Core 2 computers? for what reason? what purpose?

I don't mean to say that they'll drop support for all Core 2 Duos, but I have a Core 2 Duo that they just dropped support for (white macbook.) I'm writing this post from it. So based on past behavior, I'll have no more security updates when the thing after Mountain Lion is released, whenever that is.
