Welcome to the Apple Community.
AirPlay Mirroring requires a second-generation Apple TV or later, OS X 10.8 or better and is supported on the following Mac models: iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer).

this is not true. I had been able to mirror my macbook to my apple TV from my 10.7 mountain Lion. Now it does not do this. My ipad can now but not the laptop. I need help. Do I have to pay for the 10.8 upgrade?
This does not seem right.

You are responding to a thread from 8 months ago.
Native Mirroring is a feature of 10.8, and also requires a recent Mac. You would have been using basic airplay through iTunes or a 3rd party program

No, you couldn't. Yes, you need 10.8.

Ok I have all the requirements for this but can't find the airplay button on my new macbook air to mirror onto my apple tv.
Living overseas and trying to get my NFL game pass so I can watch football.
I saw it there a few weeks ago after I bought the computer but it's not there anymore
