Are You Ready For OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion? Find Out Now.

Tekserve by Michael Truskowski

OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be here soon. Are you prepared?

Can my computer run Mountain Lion?

You need to be running either Snow Leopard (10.6.8) or Lion (10.7 and later).

Here is a list of the computers that can run Mountain Lion.

  • 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)

To find out what kind of computer you have, click on the ? logo in the upper left of your computer screen and select “About This Mac”. On OS X Lion, click on “More Info” at the bottom of the window. The model type will be listed on the next screen that appears.

An even easier way to tell (especially if you are running Snow Leopard), is to download the excellent Mactracker app to determine what Mac you have. It also has all kinds of useful information about every Mac model ever made.

Anything else my Mac needs to have?

Your Mac must have at least 2GB RAM and 8GB free space on the Hard Drive. Keep in mind those are minimum specifications, we usually recommend double that to make sure it runs optimally. Tekserve can max out your RAM and hard drive for a flat fee.

Should I plan on upgrading to Mountain Lion as soon as it comes out? Will my current operating system stop working?

You are by no means required to be the first one on the block with the new system. If you are on a mission critical computer (like one you use for work), it is probably a good idea to hold off for a few weeks or so, and definitely wait until your software is supported. Your old operating system will continue to work as before (although new apps will likely require the new system going forward). read more...
