    Just wondering if I should install Lion on my mid 2007 MacBook, 2.0/2gb ram. it is running snow leopard perfect. Since I have Lion on an dvd just wondering if it would be worth it.

    Although you have the minimum specs to upgrade to Lion, I would stick with Snow Leopard. You would probably notice a slow down in performance, start-up, etc.

    Run a late 06 Macbook with 3GB of Ram and I don't have a problem with it. I just do browsing, email and light office work though, so it may just depend on what you like to do. For me, the iCloud stuff is a plus as well.

    I have a late 07 macbook, 4GB RAM and it runs just fine.

    I wouldn't try running it with less than 3GB though.
