I got a new Apple TV for Christmas, I read tha the OS X Mountain Lion supported AirPlay with the Apple TV, so I paid for the OS upgrade.  After the upgrade I found out that AirPlay is not supported on iMac's older than mid 2011.   This ***** because this was the only reasion I needed the upgrade,   It should have been more clearly posted that the features of the new OS were only supported on specific machines!


Short of buying a new iMac is there a way to use Airport Mirroring from my iMac to the TV ?


What other Mountain Lion features don't work on a late 2009 iMac ?
