Here's a List of Macs Compatible With OS X Yosemite

Monday's announcement of OS X Yosemite unveiled some pretty cool new features coming to your Mac. But will your computer be able to run the new OS?

For those who want to know if the computer sat in front of them will support the OS, Ars Technica has compiled a list of compatible hardware. It runs:

  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later), (15-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later), (17-inch, Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac Mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

To run Yosemite, your Mac will need 2GB of RAM, 8GB of available storage and at least OS X 10.6.8 already installed on the device. They're essentially the same requirements as demanded by OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or OS X 10.9 Mavericks—so if you're running either of those, you can rest easy. [Ars Technica]
