    If you are actually running ML right now you just: a) admitted to using pirated software, or b) just violated a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Apple.

    If I understand the NDA, what the cat in gestation does is secret, not the fact that you're in the cat tamer brother and sisterhood...

     

    But I vote for a), given his low number of points....

    Yes, your machine can run Mountain Lion...

     

    MacBook Pro – 13″ from mid 2009 or later, 15″ from late 2007 and newer, 17″ from late 2007 and newer

     

    Your's is a late 2008, MacBookPro5,1. You should have no problems.

    This is my computer.... and unfortunately so far I'm unable to get airplay to show up... either in my menu bar or in the display settings. Any thoughts? Am I doing something wrong?

    Airplay is only available on 2011 MacBook Pros.

     

    Sorry,

    Thanks for your help.

    Only thing I can belatedly add to this thread is that, although your Mac does indeed fill the bill in terms of requirements, upgrading as much as you can the RAM beyond your current 4GB will significantly enhance the usability you will get from the new OS. As with Lion, it is a full 64-bit system and, thus, is happiest with as much real RAM it can get. (in comparison to the make-believe that the virtual memory swapping area constitutes)

    I didn't notice that 4GB of RAM in the OP message. He/she should defintely hook up with at least 8GB, as HighPlaceStudios has.

    HighPlaceStudios,

     

    Your in the same boat as a lot of people. It only works on the following models listed below. You can use AirParrot ($10) to achieve the same thing.

     

    AirPlay Mirroring

    Requires a second-generation Apple TV or later. Supports the following Mac models:

    • iMac (Mid 2011 or newer)
    • Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer)
    • MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer)
    • MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer)
