Just wondering as I'm contemplating the upgrade myself.
What are you still doing here? Go download Mountain Lion!
It's worth it for any new Mac.
Isn't it free for new MBP owners?
Well at least link it to your apple account so you can download it later should you decide to do so.
Right now there are a lot of bugs and unsupported apps so it depends on each person.
just upgrade it, definately better than Lion
I don't see a reason not to. Especially since you have a brand new machine.
7-0 in favor so far (at the time of this writing).
I did the upgrade. It downloaded, rebooted, installed, and rebooted back. No problems here. Was quick and painless. I say do it.
There's no harm in the update afaik, but I can't say it's any better than Lion. Notification centre is pretty useless to me, anything particularly good I've missed?
It will end up costing the owner $20 + taxes because of Apple's shoddy handling of the code distro system.
Safari doesn't suck anymore
Memory management appears to be working.
I'm liking PowerNap
Airplay Mirroring works great with my Time Capsule
iCloud in iWork now works.
I find Notification Center to be useful
Scrolling is so much better
How does it end up costing them money? Some people decided not to wait for Apple to sort out the mess with the codes, and they chose to pay to upgrade. Many others have now gotten their codes and updated just fine, for free.
Which part of memory management is now working? I'm still having the same problem with inactive memory not being freed up and therefore leading to page outs unless I manually purge it.
I think you answered your own question with "Some people decided not to wait for Apple to sort out the mess with the codes, and they chose to pay to upgrade."
I second that question about memory management!
Safari released memory on my MBA once I had opened up enough applications. One thing I didn't look for was the page outs but I noticed no serious performance degradation in the little bit of testing that I did.
This is encouraging because with a SSD drive page outs don't come with quite the same penalty as opposed to HDD.
It`s free, painless, adds functionality, no negatives so far on my Retina & Late 2011 15" MBP 2.4 i7 (high tier) I can see absolutely no reason to upgrade if you have a Retina or the 2011 Machines.
I know, but still...that was a decision they made. They didn't have to pay the $20. Not only that, but if they talk to Apple customer service I can almost guarantee that the $20 will get refunded.
Do people at least agree that it reduces the scroll lag??
It took little over a day to get my code and I had no problem with the install.
I didn't have lag prior so the performance looks the same to me.
Indeed, YES! The amount of lag has decreased a lot on my rMBP after installing ML. There is still some noticeable lag when scrolling down Facebook for example, but it's definitely better than Lion.
It was the most painless OS upgrade I've ever done. Other than a slight lag on AirPlay, I'm very happy with ML so far!
Or you can just torrent it.
AirPlay is a bit buggy in general, but it's good. If you're in certain apps on the Apple TV (Netflix), it tends to connect and then disconnect... and still never say connected on the menu even when it is.
But it's solid overall. I really like Notification Center, and it's overall faster than Lion, even on my iMac.
great update, very easy and scrolling on safari now very smooth on my rMBP
Guys I have another question. The main reason I'm still waiting is that I have a lot of third party compilers and other software and am worried that there will be issues under Mountain Lion.
So my question is this: if I do a complete time machine backup of my current system with Lion installed, then install Mountain Lion and see that one of my crucial tools stopped working, can I get a complete reinstall of my previous (current) Lion system or will Migration Assistant force me to remain upgraded to Mountain Lion?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.
I love it.
Addicted to my notification center and imessage.
Anyone know how to change where your name appears and not your apple ID for iMessage? My friends keep asking me, "who is this?"
allegedly all will be well when ios6 is updated without having to change a bunch of stuff to make it work correctly (isn't that was mac users used to say about PC software?)
