    I'm running Lion 10.7.5 on my MacBook Pro from late 2011.

    Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB

    Should I update to Yosemite? I don't really care about the features of Yosemite, it's more about some applications not being made for Lion anymore... If it's going to make my computer much slower than I don't really think it's worth it.

    I would give it a shot and if it doesn't work out go back to Mavericks.

    I recently updated from Snow Leopard 10.6.8 to Yosemite 10.10.1 on my

    MBP MacBook Pro 64-Bit Core2Duo 2.53GHz MacBookPro5,4 Mid-2009 15" MC118LL/A Unibody aluminum. Upgraded RAM, Internal HDD, and new battery in 2013. Currently 8GB RAM, 1TB HD.
    and I cannot tell much difference in performance.

    Booting is slower, but normal operations, about the same.

    It should be fine but if not you can always downgrade.
    Just make sure you backup your stuff.

    Thanks! I'm still a little undecided though just because yours definitely has better specs than mine...
