    Hi, i just took delivery of my 21.5" 2.7 i5 imac :) surprisingly it has shipped with mac osx 10.6.6

    have the initial lion bugs that were all over these boards been sorted with the latest update? or should i hold tight on SL for now? Cheers

    I was in the same place as you, should I or shouldn't I upgrade, but I realized that the majority of the posts in this forum are to bitch about their problems, so I did it and guess what???

    IT WORKS...!

    Just go for it...!

    depends on how much software that you have that you already use and whether this software has any issues in LION. For example: Aperture's adjustment section runs very slowly in LION currently.

    You probably won't run into many bugs, but there's not a huge difference between Snow Leopard and Lion.

    The biggest reason to switch to Lion will be to use applications that require it. Until then, I'd wait a little while longer. You're not missing anything.
