Most of that you can just not use or get over it. Snow leopard probably will run on it, but you'll have to switch eventually. Additionally, you'd have to buy SL.I don't like the little things: the new loading progress bar, the "full screen" windows, the scroll bars (I HATE them)...
We? Speak for yourself. I and many others have had no issues.We know it still has alot of things to fix and sort out, but hey it's only the second upgrade. Give it some time
Well then the "we" minority that is experiencing problems thenMost of that you can just not use or get over it. Snow leopard probably will run on it, but you'll have to switch eventually. Additionally, you'd have to buy SL.

It's best not to downgrade as slow leopard might not have all the necessary drivers for the computer. Many have said that you have to move forward sooner or later so it's quite pointless to downgrade now and then upgrade later.Will Snow Leopard install on a late 2011 MBP?
I don't like Lion that much and would like to go "back" to the good old Snow Leo.
Has anone done this on a late 2011 MBP? Thanks!
Yes, I am running Snow Leopard on my Late 2011 MBP 15 inch 2.4Ghz, 8GB, SSD computer.
BEFORE you install SL you need to download this: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399
Save it to a SD Card or Flashdrive with at least 2GB of space.
What you need to do is find a legit copy (or any other means, I won't say of of course) of 10.6.7. Then, burn it to a CD and install it. You mouse, keyboard function keys at the top, as well as the resolution will look whack. Don't worry, this is normal.
Once booted up and you finish setup, plug in your USB drive or SD card or external hard drive whatever means of saving that file you downloaded above. Drag it to the desktop, and go though the installer. Once it reboots, everything will look normal, keyboard will work, drivers installed, everything will be just like it came from Apple is Snow Leopard installed.
I don't know what others are saying, but I haven't gotten a single, crash, kernel panic etc.
Good luck!So it's as simple as installing it from a valid media and applying the latest Snow Leopard update..nice!
Thanks for confirming, I'll purchase Snow Leopard right away.
I can also upload my 10.6.7 ISO from my Early 2011 MBP, which I used to install SL if needed.The latest version of the retail disk is 10.6.3.
If you have an earlier FireWire equipped Mac handy you can use that to install it on the 2011 using Target Disk Mode then apply the 10.6.8 Combo Update.
That won't work.I believe that would be in breach of the EULA but i'll purchase the official disks from apple. thanks for the offer though
