These Macs Can Run OS X Yosemite

Andrew Cunningham, reporting for Ars Technica:

Most iOS and OS X users are getting off easy with iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. Any Mac that can run OS X 10.8 or 10.9 can also run 10.10, a list that includes Macs from as far back as 2007. Here's the full list: + 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) This is the second year running that a new OS X version has supported the same Macs as its predecessor, following three releases that all dumped a handful of Macs. Though I should upgrade to a new Mac, I'm very pleased to learn that my ancient but trusty Late 2008 aluminum MacBook is capable of running Yosemite. Perhaps I can squeeze yet another year of service out of it. (via The Loop)
