I would like to buy OS X Lion and install it on my MacBook Pro with 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo, but this processor is not in the list of the specifications (Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 or Xeon processor).
Is it really true that I can't install Lion on my Mac? If so, what is the reason?
It has to be a Core 2 Duo. Those are the requirements for Lion.
Requires a newer Mac.
Lion requires an Intel-based Mac with a Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7 or Xeon processor and 2GB of RAM.
