One big thing thats got me interested is Airplay mirroring. 20 bucks is a heck of a lot less then the 30-50 dollar display port to HDMI connector and a long HDMI cable. So, that may be worth the price right there. If my Apple TV will work with it. Its been jailbroken and I have not used it since. LOL.
Mountain Lion user here on a MacBook Pro 15" i7 Intel quad core. I'm not seeing a real need to have upgraded from Lion. And if you use The Gimp for graphics, the upgrade breaks the functionality because Mountain Lion deletes the X11 Quartz driver needed by The Gimp. Other than that the upgrade was pretty painless although you need a lot of bandwidth to download the 4 gig image. And if you want to save that image say to do a clean install you can, google how to do it. I have noticed an increase in Flash plugin
crashes using Chrome after upgrading but only on ABC news site. Cool thing Airplay Mirroring. I don't have an Apple TV though. So I bought the Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor. Works very well as this MacBook has a high end PCIe video adaptor for external display.
