Upcoming Mountain Lion update will drop support on older Macs

In preparation for the upcoming release of Apple’s latest and greatest computer OS, Mountain Lion, Cupertino has released requirements for devices eligible for the upgrade. Those being cut-off from the refresh will be: pre-2007 iMacs, pre-2008 Mac Pros, MacBook Airs released in the first half of 2008 and MacBook Pros released before mid-2007.  Although Apple didn’t reveal the reasoning behind the incompatibility, Ars Technica speculates that it is related to graphics architecture and more specifically graphics drivers. Mountain Lion is expected to be released on July 25.
