Got Lion recovery installed on the thumb drive, got the cover off, the battery unplugged, hard drive removed, and swapped with the SSD and the ram modules swapped out 2x2gig for 2x4gig for 8gig of ram. Downloading lion from apple now. Got about an hour
EDIT: Might as well update to mountain lion while I am at it. Fun fun
Perhaps I should bootcamp windows, but that means I will need to buy another copy of windows. Blech.
