My Macbook Air is currently on SL 10.6.8 and works great. Probably faster than when it was on Leopard.


Will upgrading to Mountain Lion or at least Lion cause me any problems with regards to heat and/or performance ?


It's a late 2008 Macbook Air (compatible with Mountain Lion) 1.6Ghz Core2Duo, 2GBs RAM and 120GB hard drive (NOT SSD).

    With only 2GB and a standard hard drive I'd recommend against Mt Lion. 2GB is the minimum required and that truly is a minimum. Lion would be acceptable but you'd notice that it was a bit slower than your Snow Leopard is now.


    In the past I've recommended to several friends and colleagues with the same computer as yours to stay with Snow Leopard unless they had an absolute need to use Lion.

    Ok thanks.. I'll leave it at Snow Leopard.
