If i update my macbook from 10.7 to 10.8 before the official release, the GM Version that is out, will it be the same that will release on the 25 or are there going to be any last min fixes until the 25th. So be said should i upgrade now? should i wait? is the GM version out now stable enough that all the feature will work or is it just best to wait it out

There is a 99.9% chance that the GM build will be identical to the release version. GM versions are traditionally only changed in the event of an error or flaw that is present on a catastrophic level. The GM build is stable on my MacBook 5,1 and runs much better than OS X Lion. However, this may not be the case for you. Initial releases are often buggy and may cause trouble. If you use your computer in a professional way it would probably be wise to have patience.

If you do choose to update to 10.8, use common sense and back up your data.
