Would MacBook Pro mid-2010 support airplay mirroring?


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Hi Eluboy

     

    No.  macBook Pro needs to be early 2011 (other Macs Mid-2011) to support airplay mirror.

     

    A third party app called airparrot (airparrot.com) can give you mirroring on older Macs like yours for about 10 bucks.  I have found it works like mirror as I have both.

     

    Regards

    Unfortunately not.  I have done research and people claim it is a hardware compatibility issue.  However I don't understand why this would be since I can stream HD movies to an Apple TV no problem.  So what's the issue with just streaming a screen...?
