    Hi guys, I have a 1st gen MBA that's a beauty, no scratches, running Snow Leopard beautifully. Do you know anyone running Lion on it? I just wanted to know how it goes before attempting to upgrade.

    No I don't know anyone running Lion on your 1st gen MBA.

    Sorry, I just had to do it.

    Yeah, it should run on any Core 2 Duo machine. Even though the 1st gen MBA runs on a 32bit kernel, it should be alright.

    DP4 runs very poorly on the Late 08 Model MacBook Air I own. This is not to say that the final version will run poorly.

    Right now Lion has many, many memory leaks and bugs that need to be sorted out.

    Just wait and see how it is after it ships in July is my opinion right now.

    Interesting. I played around with DP3 that a developer friend of mine had hacked onto his 1st Gen White MacBook and it seemed to run pretty well. No idea why it would run worse on a GMA950 CoreDuo vs. a X3100 Core2Duo?
