    Has anybody out there installed ML on your 2010 11" MBA? If so, what has your experience been? How's the performance, etc.?

    Contemplating upgrading mine, but wanted to see if anyone had tested the water yet.

    Thanks.

    I am installing it on my 11' 2gb as we speak. Hopefully it would reolve some issues i had with office 11. And be faster. Will let you know when it finishes and use it a bit

    I did it yesterday, upgrading from Snow Leopard. Some gestures are impossible to get back, but I am quite pleased with the new OS. Installation was painless & I haven't had one issue.

    Went from Lion on a 13" 2010 with 2 gb ram to ML. Seems ok, but it doesn't seem snappier nor slower. I didn't really use safari in Lion, but Safari seems nice.

    Always best to have the latest anyway? As long as the performance doesn't decrease I mean.

    Just upgraded my 2010 11" MBA to ML this morning. Did the quick and easy upgrade versus clean install and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. The performance is about the same and my CPU temp is actually running about 5C cooler.

    I still have a lot more use and testing to do before I'm completely sure about ML on my 2010 11" MBA, but so far it is looking really good.
