Hi
Decided to put a SSD into the MacBook and dual boot osX 10.7.5 and openSUSE Leap 42.1, boot times are good which is suprising since the SATA is only at 1.5Gb/s. System has 2.5GB of RAM at the moment and graphics is an Intel X3100 (Intel Mobile GM965/GL960).

Have conky (ver 1.10.x) running as well as a few extensions. Only issue at present is getting grub to play nice with osX when dual booting.
