    Hi guys!
    I have a MacBook Pro 4,1 with this configuration:

    CPU: 2.5 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    RAM: 6 GB
    Graphic Card: GeForce 8600M GT with 512Mb RAM
    HD: 250 GB

    Somebody has already try to install Mountain Lion?

    Been running Mountain Lion on my MBP 4,1 (2.4 GHz, 2 GB memory) for a few months now. No problems whatsoever (and faster than Lion) :)

    I have the same machine... except in 17"

    ML seems to run a bit smoother than Lion.

    No issues. You should be good.

    Thanks guys!
    But if you compare Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion? Which is smoother?

    I've been using ML on my Macbook Pro 4.1 since the GM came out.

    I've not have any problems. I only have 4GB ram but it's working nicely.

    I haven't noticed any performance changes. It used to run smoothly on Lion and it's just as smooth on ML

    Photoshop CS6 seems to be a bit better on ML but that might just be my imagination.

    I saw an early ML version installed on MBP 3,1 (2.4 GHz Santa Rosa). Processor temperature was higher than usual (it normally run Snow Leopard) and the fans kept spinning loudly.

    I will try to install it after a CCC backup of currently SL installation. What do you think? Always better a fresh install of ML?

    Hi! I'm going to upgrade to ML because of positive experiences with early 2008 MacBook Pro. Should I wait for 10.8.1. or jump right in?

    Anyone found any issues with MBP 4,1?

    Which Method did you use?

    I have been trying desparately to install Mountain Lion or Mavericks on my 2.4 Ghz White Macbook 4,1 w/4GB of RAM and I can't quite get it. I have followed HackerWayne's video for MLPostFactor and after the installation I get a silver blank screen. Maybe I will try to follow it again. I heard the Chameleon method might work but it is buggy. How did you do it? I am running Lion right now.
