    Will it work?

    I only have 1GB of RAM in this atm - but if i upgrade to more would it work?

    Yes, I had the GM installed on an 08 black macbook with 4 GB of RAM and it worked fine. You miss out on the gestures but everything should be smooth sailing if I remember. I got a new computer in between so I can't tell you about performance, but it looked fine when I did it. Upgrade your RAM even if you don't get Lion, you'll thank yourself later.

    The OP is referring to the 2008 MacBook, which has a Core 2 Duo processor (64 bit) and WILL run OS X Lion (which will run quite well when the RAM is upgraded to at least 4GB)

    ...why on earth did you bump an ancient thread only to post something totally wrong??

    The 4,1 Macbook has a 64 bit Core 2 Duo processor. I have one, with Lion.
