    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | LED Cinema Display | iPhone 4 | iPad 2
    If your machine's not eligible, you won't be able to download it from the MAS.

    But it should be fine.

    I think mine is the next model:

    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: iMac
    Model Identifier: iMac8,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 6 MB
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: IM81.00C1.B00
    SMC Version (system): 1.29f1


    If it helps, this is running Lion fine.


    I had to upgrade the RAM in my MacMini before that would accept Lion. Until I did, the Installer would not let me even start. Therefore, I suspect schweb is correct.

    Good luck
