Hi everyone, I'm new here had a Macbook Pro 13" for 2 years now currently running Snow Leopard, had a White MacBook before that, made the switch from PC and haven't regretted it at all.

I've just got iOS5 on my iPad 2 and noticed that to have iCloud functioning with my laptop that I need to be running Lion although when I googled it I noticed that some people couldn't upgrade their 13" MBPs, mine is a mid 2009 with a 2.26 Intel Core Duo and 2GB of ram, is it upgradeable, any help would be appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

Any Apple computer with at least an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor can be upgraded to Lion.

And yes...your MBP does have an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (NOT a Core Duo) as described above)!
