    It's not going to make your computer feel much faster, if that's what you're looking for. There are some good reviews of it around and it is probably best to wait for a bit before updating.

    So what'd you do when the next update comes, and the next one, and so on... Lion may not please everyone right now, but its the start of something new, and setting up for what's ahead.


    Its Time Now

    Lion runs fine on my iMac (24" / 2.93 GHz / 4GB RAM). It takes slightly longer to wake from sleep (I see the same thing on my MBA), but in general, performance seems to be unaffected. The only noticeable difference has been Mission Control and the new gestures, but if you can get beyond the Internet Rage, then those quickly become second nature.

    true that i likw mission control and the auto save with copies as you edit a document but a mjaor selling point is gester which is probally really nice on the laptop but has not use on an imac

    Most problems with updates lets talk Lion, are the individual computers problem not Lion itself. Tons of people treat thie computers like dumping grounds, i know because i see it. Apple does not release updates to accommodate everything on all computers.

    What that said, its a known issue that some THIRD party Apps/programs may not run well with Lion, i loaded Lion on one of my Mac Pro's (3yrs old) with NO problem and it runs great, yet some speak of problems.

    Before updating my computer i always run a disk repair, back-up, and do a soft reset (reboot) before installing any updates.
