Here's a list of the machines that will be upgradable:

Your Mac must be one of the following models:

iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)

MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)

MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)

MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)

Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)

Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)

Xserve (Early 2009)

I'd recommend upgrading to 4GB (if your machine supports 4GB), Mountain Lion with 2GB won't be a joy to work with.

If your MacBook doesn't support 4GB it likely not support OS X Mountain Lion, as Apple restricts the new OS to true 64bit processors.
