Hi all,

Have just finished repairing the logic board, upgrading the processor, memory and generally refurbishing it to showroom standards prior to sale and, was wondering if this particular mac can run OSX Lion 10.7.4.

Obviously it cant run Mountain Lion as its only got 128mb ATI graphics...

Specs are as follows.

Core 2 Duo T5750 2.16 FSB667 4MB Cache
4GB DDR2 667 RAM
500GB HDD
128MB ATI Graphics..

Can anyone shed light on this one for me please..

Thanks

was going to but didnt want to throttle the graphics. GPUS are very delicate right after reballing them and you really dont want to run before you can walk...

*This system can run the last version of OS X 10.7 "Lion" if upgraded to at least 2 GB of RAM. Although it has a 64-bit processor, it has a 32-bit EFI and is not capable of booting into 64-bit mode. It does not support "OpenCL" either. Please also note that OS X Lion is not capable of running Mac OS X apps originally written for the PowerPC processor as it does not support the "Rosetta" environment. This model cannot run versions of OS X newer than 10.7.x "Lion."
