BTW Install Time on a Recent Mac =

Only took my early-08 MBP 20-30mins at the most.

I've got the ML GM running on an external boot drive, but am waiting for the promo codes to formally upgrade my MacBook Air and iMac. Have you got yours yet? Spoke to Apple yesterday, and they said it could be 72 hours.

I sent an email for support yesterday a little after noon about the redeem code already being used. Had an email this morning with a new code that did work, the new code came in just after midnight, so less then half a day, definitely a lot better then 72 hours.

My 2010 MacBook Pro took about 24 minutes to install. This is with an OCZ Agility 3 SSD.

lol. Give them an e-mail/call, see if they can credit your account. You were entitled to a free copy after all.

Mountain Lion doesn't feel as "snappy" as Lion felt. Things are a bit slower on it. Yes the spotlight index has been complete so that is not the issue.

I asked Apple support about this when informed that the promo codes could be 72 hours in rolling out... they said I could go ahead and buy it, but they would not credit me back.

Oh, that's too bad.

My only complaint about ML so far is that Backspace no longer goes back a page in Safari 6. Seems like business as usual otherwise.

I absolutely love the notifications especially for e-mails.
