[Rumor] Mac App Store Will Make Sure Your Mac Is Compatible With Mountain Lion

Apple’s latest operating system, Mountain Lion is right around the corner. This time around it seems that the Mac App Store will validate compatibility before letting you download Mountain Lion

Last year when Lion was released, users were able to purchase and download Lion on any Intel Mac regardless of if the computer actually met the specifications. Obviously this caused problems as the less computer-savvy folks paid $30 for absolutely nothing.

According to 512 Pixels this time around, will be different. The Mac App Store will actually validate your Mac’s compatibility before allowing you to purchase or download the new OS. This sounds like a great feature that will undoubtedly help many users with incompatible Macs avoid frustration.

Mountain Lion compatibility is as follows:

  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)

You must be running OS X 10.6.8, have at least 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage free. There’s no release date for Mountain Lion but it’s expected to arrive in the next week or two.

Does your Mac meet Mountain Lion’s requirements?
