Last OS for A1211?

Can I install the Snow Leopard OS in my MacBook Pro 15, A1211, Core 2 Duo, 2.33, 3Gb RAM? I guess the Lion OS is too much right?

I'm running Mountain Lion on my Santa Rosa system with 4G of RAM without any problems! You should be fine.


Earlier machines may indeed take 10.8 but Apple doesn't support them so if you have issues, Apple won't help.

Yes, I was running 10.8.2 on my A1226 with no problem.
