    Hey guys,

    Just thought I would share this with you guys.. unless someone else has already posted it...

    But good news for Mid-2007 MacBook users... previously Snow Leopard would only would address slightly over 3GB of ram... Lion now recognizes the full 4GB.

    It will say 4Gb, but only 3.3Gb of it will be usable. This is a hardware limitation and cannot be fixed via software.

    My mid-07 Blackbook is running lion and cs5 quite smoothly with only 2 GB of ram.

    I remember when 2 GB was a lot!:cool:

    I also have Macbook mid-2007, but I'm still hesitating to upgrade. Could you elaborate more? Does it feel faster/slower as compared to SL? What about battery life?
