According to Apple, these are the requirements to run OS X Lion:

  • Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor
  • OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later or OS X Lion 10.7 already installed
  • 2GB of memory
  • 7GB of available space
  • Some features require an Apple ID; terms apply.
  • Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply

These Macs are compatible with OS X Mountain Lion:

  • iMac (Mid 2007-2020)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)

For those who are new to the Mac, the operating system used to cost money to upgrade. With OS X Mavericks, Apple dropped the upgrade fee completely and has kept it that way to this day. Even the upcoming macOS Monterey update is free for users with a compatible Mac. Also, macOS used to be called OS X and before that it was Mac OS X.
