From Apple's chart, it looks like the last MBPs that can run some version of Snow Leopard are the "Early 2011" ones; you could cross-check with MacTracker to be sure.

Many thanks, Tom. Just a point -- when referring to MacTracker it needs to be specified as "MacTracker.ca". There is a mactracker.com but it leads to a non-existent site.

MacTracker.ca tells what OS a Mac was issued with and the latest it can run but makes no mention of earlier OSs it can use.

I notice, though, that while early 2011 models were the last sold with Snow Leopard and the late 2011 models were sold with Lion installed the firmware updates for these models are given as the same: MacBook Pro EFI Update 2.7.

I wonder whether this means the late 2011 models can run OS X.6.8 too.

Cheers, geoff
