    gf has a late 2009 macbook 6.1 running snow leopard. It has 4GB ram, would it be OK to upgrade to Lion or would this not be a good idea? Or maybe even Snow Lion?

    Screen is currently not working and is running on an external monitor

    Mountain Lion would be the best to upgrade to. There is no Snow Lion. I am assuming you're talking about Mountain Lion. I have Mountain Lion on my Late 2008 and it runs perfectly fine with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo and 4GB RAM

    I'd recommend going to Mountain Lion over Lion, as Lion has been referred to as the "Vista of OS X".

    I have a Late '08 aluminum MacBook and I'm running the DP8 of Mavericks, and it runs great on my MacBook :)
