Following my post, �Upgrading to Mountain Lion: How to prepare, Apple has since posted the complete Mountain Lion incompatibility list on their How to upgrade page. The page specifies which Macs are capable of supporting and upgrading to Mountain Lion. In order to upgrade, your Mac must be one of the following models or later:
- 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)
The page also goes on to state that you will need to be running Lion or Snow Leopard at the very minimum since the Mac App Store will be required to download the upgrade. Apple released the Mountain Lion Gold Master earlier this week and is expected to release the final software toward the end of this month.
Parallels has also announced a new update to their popular desktop virtualization software that takes advantage of the new MacBook Pro Retina display. Parallels Mobile had been updated to support the new iPad with Retina display, which brings the family of software up-to-date and Retina ready. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read up on all the latest features Parallels has to offer, read my post on Parallels 7 for the Mac, which talks in depth about the application.
If you’re looking to snag a copy of Parallels 7 on the cheap, there is a great deal going on over at stacksocial.com while supplies last. You can get Parallels 7 along with several other bundled applications, as well as an iOS App Development video course, all for 49 bucks.
