The update turned my 2010 13" MBP into a slug. I have 8 gigs of Ram and it's like everything from login to launching apps takes forever. Looking at the reviews in the app store pretty much backs up my experience. My hope is an update will fix this soon or it's rollback time.
What are people's experiences with battery life with the final build compared to OS X Lion?
I'm considering running it as the main OS on my Mac. However, it won't be my overall main OS, as my "main" PC is a Windows 7 box.
How stable is it at the moment, and are there any major bugs?
Curious if anyone out there who has experimented with the Messages Beta can tell me what is happening with video conference calls in Mountain Lion. Is a Facetime upgrade coming in Mountain Lion as well?
I ask since I use video conferencing and screensharing in iChat with all of my family members for our weekly calls and also for my "tech support" situations. We relied on iChat in the past for this simply because of its ease of use. I didn't have to try to get my family to setup a Skype account...
I'm curious, since Apple announced that OS X Mountain Lion will ship this summer, does that also mean we should expect the Ivy Bridge MacBook Pros at that time? Would Apple refresh the product line and then ship Mountain Lion after? I guess since they use an all App Store distribution now, it doesn't really matter.
