“This years WWDC should see an announcement regarding the next version of Mac OS X, but will you be able to run it?” Simon Royal writes for Low End Mac.
“OS X 10.10 is rumoured to be called Syrah, a type of red grape grown in specific regions, one of which is in California,” Royal writes. “However, even the numbering scheme is debated. Will they jump to 10.10, which seems the most obvious choice? … the numbering seemed to have fallen by the wayside in favour of the naming scheme, so perhaps they could drop numbering altogether. On a side note, with Mountain Lion, Apple silently dropped the Mac from Mac OS X, simply calling it OS X.”
OS X 10.10 could require an i5, 4GB DDR3 RAM and 512MB video RAM, which means these machines would be the minimum to support it:
• iMac, Late 2009
• Mac mini, Late 2012
• MacBook Air, Mid 2012
• MacBook Pro, Mid 2010
• 2009 Mac Pro
