    I know it is supported but I am curious what you think about performance and battery life with ML on this machine?

    I already have Lion running good on it so unless it is worse than Lion I will most likely upgrade.

    Any comments highly appreciated!

    Thanks

    In hindsight I should have waited. On my 2010 MBA, purchased March 2011, notifications don't seem to be working, reminders crash on my account when opening, and the desktop icons are much slower to load. Overall it just seems a little slower. There really isn't anything I can do about it now except wait for updates. Not sure when those will come.

    Did you do a fresh install or just upgrade your existing version of OS X?

    I found that there is a lot more to be gained off of a fresh install over an upgrade performance wise.

    I did an upgrade. How do you go about the fresh install?
