So my biggest question is, do you guys think that Mavericks will be available on a 2008 Macbook with Intel Duo?

I seriously like the idea of a Macbook Air with 12 hours of battery life, and would probably upgrade IF my good old Macbook isn't covered under those requirements. I know the keynote practically just ended, but has anyone got their hands on that information?

If it can't run Mountain Lion, it's not gonna run 10.9. :(
My Macbook is handling Mountain Lion. I'm actually really surprised. I'm used to my 4.2GHz desktop beast but the macbook is just as fast with the newest software running at a mere 2GHz

Awesome, thank you very much, that made my day even better. I'm still considering picking up the sexy new Macbook Air for that oh so amazing battery life. But it's good to know that I won't have to.
