I can't see to find it from apple, and I can't update to mountain lion because my iMac has a intel core 2 duo but 32 bit architecture. 

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Upgrading to Lion


    If your computer does not meet the requirements to install Mountain Lion, it may still meet the requirements to install Lion.


    You can purchase Lion by contacting Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service - this includes international calling numbers. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.


         Lion System Requirements


           1. Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7,

               or Xeon processor

           2. 2GB of memory

           3. OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)

           4. 7GB of available space

           5. Some features require an Apple ID; terms apply.

    Thank you, I should have thought of that. Where did you find the system requirements for it?, because different places say my iMac can support up to Mountain Lion, only to Lion, or niether.

    Thanks again
