    Late 2008 aluminium Macbook with ML...? PLEASE HELP!

    I'm currently running SL on a Late 2008 Aluminium Macbook and thinking of upgrading to Mountain Lion. I know this can be done. But I'm not sure if Mountain Lion would run smoothly given the age of my Mac. It is very important that my system is smooth and stable as I use my Mac for work!

    Here's are my details;

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook5,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB51.007D.B03
    SMC Version (system): 1.40f2
    Serial Number (system): W89121X98QR
    Hardware UUID: A94E097D-DC57-516C-B711-58FD9D912AB9
    Sudden Motion Sensor:
    State: Enabled

    And graphics.....

    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M:

    Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
    Type: GPU
    Bus: PCI
    VRAM (Total): 256 MB
    Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
    Device ID: 0x0863
    Revision ID: 0x00b1
    ROM Revision: 3385
    Color LCD:
    Resolution: 1152 x 720
    Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
    Main Display: Yes
    Mirror: Off
    Online: Yes
    Built-In: Yes
    Display Connector:
    Status: No Display Connected

    Thoughts anyone?

    If anything were to go wrong, how easy is it to go back? Is there a way to easily restore my computer back to how it is now?

    Any advice much aprecated!

    Thank you very much in advance,
