Actually Airdrop is supported on Older macs, but is not visible; if you want it to be visible follow my steps:
1. Open Terminal
2. Insert the following command:
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser BrowseAllInterfaces 1
3. Once complete insert the next following code: killall Finder
4. This should have fixed the issue, to test this goto Desktop>Menubar>Finder>Go>Airdrop
I hope this helped

Are you claiming it is supported by Apple? Not according to the list of officially supported hardware in the link posted above. Using a terminal hack isn't really considered official support and should only be used with extreme caution; instructions should also include a method to revert to the previous state in case it does not work.

It sure did help !!
However, I can see my newer MacBook Pro on the old iMac (on AirDrop), but not the other way around ! The MAcBook Pro came with Snow Leopard , and is now running Lion, so I am not sure what I should do for it see the iMac as well. Thanks.
