I am currently running Lion on a White Macbook from late 2006. I am running it with 2GB of ram. Would switching back to Snow Leopard speed my Macbook up?

I just ordered a rMBP and my daughter will use this computer. So is it worth it to reinstall Snow Leopard?

Thanks

Richard

Upgrade ram and stay with lion.

I can only install 3GB of ram. Well thats all the computer will accept. Will 1GB of ram make much of a difference?

I'd just reinstall Snow Leopard if you are unhappy how the Macbook is currently running Lion. I don't think you take a huge hit in terms of software compatibility, which is only disadvantage i can see to running an older OS.
