We tell you which Macs are compatible with OSX 10.9 Mavericks

As we know, Apple announced the release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, later version of the Mac OS after Mountain Lion.

But have you wondered if your current Mac could be upgraded to the new OS? The first thing to know is that to download via theApp Store on your Mac, you will need at least OS X 10.6.7 or later. This is actually less than the requirement that Mountain Lion required, which required OSX 10.6.8 for the installation.

    In terms of graphics, OS X 10.9 does not support the card ATI Radeon X1600 or Intel GMA 950 or X3100. Thus, integrated graphics cards are no longer usable.

    Even the versions of the Mac Pro 2006 and 2007 they will not be able to install OS X 10.9, as they could not install OS X 10.8.

    Obviously all this information is based on OS X 10.9 Beta version and can change with the release of the full version.
