    I'm wondering if there are any models of the white polycarbonate Macbooks that can run Mountain Lion.

    I'm also running it on my Late '09 MacBook.

    It will run on these, MacBook – 13″ aluminum from 2008, 13″ from 2009 (Polycarbonate) and newer

    I'm running ML on an early 2009 MacBook (which is the minimum for the plastic ones)

    OP, specs are here

    I was debating the same question, and was wondering about whether the battery life issue had been settled-see this post.

    I didn't get any responses, but installed ML on my white poly Macbook anyway.

    I'm using it right now, and will be checking the uptime in terminal until the battery applet shows about 10% or so.
