    Intel Macs with processors Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Xeon can run Mac OS X Lion. To see what processor your Mac has got, please follow the steps given below.

    (1) Click Apple Menu.

    (2) Choose About This Mac. Then you get a window with details such as Processor, Memory.

    If the processor information shown does not fall into any of the aforementioned, you can not install Mac OS X Lion on it.

    Please do not get confused between Intel Core Duo and Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

  • Only Macs with Core 2 Duo and Above can run Lion you have to be more specific about your mac.
