Couple of months ago, Thelma got a Mac from her husband. She was absolutely thrilled with it. She is an “i” lover, I am too. But, having an iPhone or an iPad (and of course know how to use them) is something, having a Mac is something else. Still learning how to work on her new comp, she will of course not confess, that sometimes she still rather uses her old HP. I know that! Her kids told me:):)
Considering all this, I knew she wouldn’t be very happy to find out that there is a new lion lurking on her:):):) Roaaaaaarrrrrr!!! I just had to tell her!
Even though we don’t know a lot about the current system, we checked and found some information about the features of the new system – Mountain Lion – that we believe could be usufull to you.
1. The system offers numerous feature additions that will be familiar to iOS users.
2. This OS X release continues Apple’s philosophy of bringing iOS features “back to the Mac,” and includes iMessage, Reminders, Notes, Notification Center, Twitter integration, Game Center, and AirPlay Mirroring.
3. As the first OS X release post-iCloud, there’s also much more thorough integration with Apple’s data-syncing service.
4. Mountain Lion also brings options to limit which kinds of apps users can install.
5. And although there are no actual mountain lions in China, OS X Mountain Lion does add a raft of features to speak to users in the country that’s Apple’s biggest growth opportunity.
6. Mountain Lion will be a paid upgrade to OS X. Like Lion, it will be available only via a Mac App Store download.
7. Apple hasn’t yet set a price or a release date more specific than “summer”!!
This summer get ready for an investment. Prepare yourself & start saving money today:)
If you are asking yourself weather your Mac supports the new system, here is the list.
As usual, the newer the Mac the better. The system supports:
* MacBook Pro – 13? from mid 2009 or later, 15? from late 2007 and newer, 17? from late 2007 and newer
* MacBook Air – late 2008 and newer
* iMac – models from mid 2007 and newer
* MacBook – 13? aluminum from 2008, 13? from 2009 and newer
* Mac Mini – early 2009 and newer
* Mac Pro – early 2008 models and newer
* XServe – early 2009 models and newer
Older Macs and those with weaker GPU’s will likely be left behind. Macs that are NOT expected to support OS X Mountain Lion are:
* Anything with an Intel GMA 950 or x3100 integrated graphics card
* Anything with an ATI Radeon X1600
* MacBook models released prior to 2008
* Mac Mini released prior to 2007
* iMac models released prior to 2007
* Original MacBook Air
So guys, you will decide weather to get a new lion or not. You can always keep an old one:):) What do you think Thelma will do???
With love T&L
