    I currently have a late-'06 macbook with a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and 2 gb of ram. do yall think i could upgrade to lion? Apples website says the only requirement is the processor which i have, but my computer doesnt have a multi-touch trackpad (the most i can do is scroll with two fingers, i believe). im sure i CAN upgrade to lion, but do you think it would be a wise choice? i just dont wanna update and notice my computer get 10x slower or anything.

    thanks for your guys help & input!

    You are not going to get all the features with gestures, but I would probably upgrade to 4GB of RAM just in case. Otherwise it's only $29...

    I recommend upgrading to 4GB as well, the 4GB kit costs $67 from OWC

    can that model take 2gb per slot? i thought you could only do 1gb each.
