Bought 2011 Refurbished Air - Upgrade to Mountain Lion?

Hi All,

I just purchased a 2011 refurbished Macbook Air from Apple. The computer is 13" 4gb / 128 gb and is eligible for the Mountain Lion up-to-date program. Before I update, I wanted to make sure it's worth it and will not slow my computer down as it is an older model. Any reason's why I should NOT update to Mountain Lion from Lion?

I have same machine and just did the upgrade, easy, quick, and no bugs yet, other than MS Office 2011 seems a little slower at times, but the rest is 99.99% better, just MS Office is a bug.

I just did the same thing after buying a used 2011 MBA. Definitely recommend upgrading to OSX 10.8. Much more refined than Lion IMO and I enjoy a lot of the little things included like Notifications, Reminders, etc.

It's well worth it...the SSD more than compensates for the 4GB of RAM...Go ahead and grab ML, it's worth it for the extra little things that come with it.

I just bought mine like 5 days ago and it already had Mountain Lion? Oh mine was 2012. I see the difference now.
