I upgraded from Lion (no clean install yet) and have zero issues. Even VMware Fusion continued to work just fine.

ML is faster/better than Lion in all respects save for battery life. IMHO the battery life trade-off is worth it for the speed increase. Coming from Lion, the improvement is noticeable.

But for the laptop specs I stated is it ok? Yours is better than mine.

I have the installer downloaded but haven't pulled the trigger yet...:D
I'm waiting on a Samsung 830 512 to arrive and take my OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G out so I'll be doing a fresh install on the Samsung.

I'm a little concerned though because of the iOS-ization of OSX and ML stirred in that direction even more than L.

I'll have to read more in the OSX forum

Go for it. Based on my experience, it will probably perform better than Lion on the same hardware.
