    I have a 1.86/4GB/128 GB MBA from Oct 2010 (2nd generation) that is still running Snow Leopard. Will I be able to upgrade to Mountain Lion when it comes out?

    I read this somewhere online and since my MBA is a C2D, I fear I will be left behind:

    Funny, in what you quoted, it says exactly which Air won't be supported.

    Where is your apple source on this?? I looked all over the preview page on Apples website and it doesn't say that anywhere.

    Please don't quote random sources.

    I was just pointing to the source the OP quoted. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Ah gotcha...I was gonna say, if you want an unofficial source that confirms it will run all the way back to 2008 MBA, just check out the other thread on here with a similar name.

    btw, the title of this thread is a statement not a question.

    The question version would be: Will Mountain Lion run on 2010 MBA.

    Having worked in retail I HATE when people ask questions with negative statements.

    ----------

    Support on a Beta OS is subject to change at a moments notice. Until Apple announces compatibility it is all just speculation and rumor.

    Dude, get over yourself.
    There are two grammar errors in your short response above.

    That says MacBooks, not MacBook Airs. And it's not even true. It's anything with either an Intel GMA950, a X3100 or a ATI X1600 that won't run Mountain Lion, due to missing 64 bit kext's for the GPUs.

    The confusion comes about because the poster doesn't know whether the line about Macbooks using a C2D refers specifically to the white/black Macbook (not Air/Pro) or to all Macbooks (inc Air/Pro) - its the distinction between the specific product line or the way we can casually use the word "Macbooks" to refer to all of the current laptop lines...

    The problem is that there is a few MacBooks with C2Ds (white 2009+, original UB 2008 model) that do support Mountain Lion so his info is plain false.

    I never complained about grammar. I don't like when people ask questions with negative statements...it means they have already asserted their decision on the question and are just asking to hear themselves talk.

    Actually, the question version should end in a question mark "?".

    Having worked as an editor, I HATE when people write a question and then just put a full stop at the end.

    My motto is, if you see a dead horse, don't just walk on by, give it a few beats for good measure!

    I thought it was pretty funny that I put a question mark actually! I had someone talking to me while typing and didn't even realize it! LOL.
