Mountain Lion ditches older Macs

Apple Mountain Lion will force many Mac models into legacy status, with no support for the upcoming OS X refresh for numerous pre-2007 MacBooks, MacBook Pros and desktops. The minimum hardware requirements of Mountain Lion - which we previewed comprehensively yesterday - apparently count out multiple models using integrated Intel GPUs, so TUAW's developer source says. That means, if you have a pre-unibody MacBook or the original MacBook Air, there's no Mountain Lion for you.

An ARM MacBook could revolutionize the industry

It's a strange week to be talking about Apple dumping Intel. Only a few days ago, the company was proudly unveiling its new iMac line-up, relying on Core i5 and Core i7 processors - along with AMD GPUs - to make them the fastest all-in-ones Apple has offered to-date. Yet at the same time as Intel's latest quad-core chips are finding their way into what Apple's Phil Schiller describes as "the world's best desktop," there's also talk that the company's close relationship with Intel is about to get served with divorce papers. ARM is coming, and the computing industry will never be the same again.
