I'm still rocking my five-year-old MacBook Pro (late 2006, 2.33gHz C2D, 3GB RAM, new HD, specs here: http://support.apple.com/kb/sp24) with no plans to buy a new Mac. I spend most of my time on my iPad nowadays anyway.


But I'm toying with the idea of upgrading the Mac to Lion, if only because there are hints that iOS 5 may require it for full compatibility this fall. I'm aware that it meets the minimum specs, but are there any firsthand reports of how Lion runs on this model? Does it feel more sluggish than Snow Leopard? I'd dearly love to add more RAM, but as owners of this model know, it maxes out at 3GB.


Thanks in advance!
