    Requirements for AirPlay Mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion

    An Apple TV

    Supported Macs
    AirPlay Mirroring in OS X Mountain Lion takes advantage of the hardware video encoding capabilities of 2nd and 3rd Generation Intel Core processors. Hardware video encoding allows AirPlay Mirroring to efficiently deliver high frame rates while maintaining optimal system performance. The following Mac models have processors that support AirPlay Mirroring:

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


    So, I'm afraid yours is Not compatible.

    If your Mac isn't supported, note that you can use third-party applications to stream your computer onto your Apple TV, as AirParrot > http://www.airparrot.com
