    Right now its still up in the air what you will be able to do with "older macs". This issue has been talked to death on here. If you want a better response look at these threads on it...

    No that is the software version not what hardware version of bluetooth you have. If you read thru the 3 links I gave you it will answer all of your questions. Right now continuity/handoff is very picky about hardware. And the most asked question is "can I use a bluetooth 4.0LE dongle" the answer is no. Its all wait and see right now. Worse comes to worse you can probably buy the broadcom wifi ac/ bluetooth 4.0 card for your computer but I would wait and see if anything changes before the official launch in the fall.
