Lion will only be usable between Lion users Each user must be running Lion 10.7 to use Airdrop
Airdrop will NOT WORK on some older macs even though you can run LION on them.
I think Apple should have made this clear in LARGE PRINT when saying what the minimum specs were for upgrading to Lion.
Apple **** a little more each day

This is a BIG disappointment! We have 3 Macs at home: A Mac Pro, a MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air, but none of them can run airdrop.
Apple should indeed have made clear that only newest models of Macs can use this feature.

In exactly the same boat, straycatchn, but with 3 out of my 4 macsoutside the support dated. And to ad insult to injury, those 3 are weach within a month or two of making the cut. Sad.

Totally agree. They should have made this very clear upfront. It was the prime reason our office upgraded to Lion in the first place...we were all looking forward to using airdrop.
Good one Apple...not happy Jan!

This was not made clear when Apple launched Lion and was one of the main reasons for me purchasing 2 copies of the OS. My wife's Mac Book identifies Air Drop but my older iMac does not!! I am furious about this and believe that Apple should make amends or provide a fix for the problem.
P.S. I had checked beforehand that both our Macs met the minimum technical requirements specified by Apple .....

I read the list of features available and noticed that, although my early 2008 MBP would run Lion, airdrop was a feature would not work. I have not downloaded Lion yet, as I'm checking to see if any other apps (3rd party) that I have will not work. Then I will decide. It IS in the list, though, if you read it.

Perhaps, but on what date did Apple post that information? What proof is there that it was prior to the launch of Lion?
I think the burdon of proof to so that it WASN'T there is on you. The information was there. You simply didn't find it and read it.
