    Hey :)
    I'm using Lion everywhere else but the 2006 white Macbook so I really wanna upgrade it also (although I know it won't support any of the gestures) I'm also not sure if it's possible and if it's a smart decision...

    The rig is 2ghz core due with 2gb of ram.

    I know officially it's not supported and I remember few treads talking about removing the supportlist.plist (or something like that) to support some unsupported hardware.

    A. is this tweak should work on this machine? do I need to set anything else to force run the installation on 32bit?
    2. do you think it's a good idea to upgrade it to lion? is this machine capable of running Lion with a good performance (it's running SL flawlessly)?


    Many thanks :)

    No. The Macbook1,1 only has a 32-bit CPU. Lion requires a 64-bit CPU.
