Just looking for feeback:
Are any other MacBook users out there that did the upgrade to Lion?

I did all my homework and got my later 2006 MacBook ready (got more RAM, did the maintenance and have the latest version of Snow Leopard) but I have not pulled the trigger yet. Want to because I have a fancy new iPhone and want to get on that cloud!

If you have a later 2006 MacBook and you upgraded to Lion please let me know how it went, what are your thoughts.

As long as it's a Core2Duo chip and you've got plenty of RAM, I'd say do it.

I'm writing this on a 2007 MacBook w/3GB and Lion, works GREAT.
